Boxwood Shrubs


Anonymous added on January 19, 2011 | Answered

I planted some boxwoods in the fall and they looked healthy for about the first two and a half months. The leaves have now gone to a red green color. I was wondering if it had something to do with the weather or my soil. I live in Alabama. They are getting plenty of sunlight.

    This is something that happens to boxwoods when they are stressed. Given the cold weather in the South this year, I would guess that the weather is to blame. It should correct itself when the weather warms up.
