The past two winters have been hard on many landscape plants, especially evergreens. We have seen widespread damage on boxwoods in particular. Because they are broadleaved evergreens, boxwoods are subject to damage from winter desiccation as well as cold damage, both of which can lead to extensive browning. Fortunately, winter damage on evergreens often appears worse than it actually is and frequently plants can recover after some careful pruning to remove affected shoots.
