Buxus sinica var. insularis 'Winter Beauty'
Winter Beauty Korean Boxwood

While most modern hybrids of Boxwood have attractive (or at least decent) foliage in Winter, some forms of Korean Boxwood (known for imparting its cold hardiness and compactnesss to these hybrids) display an unattractive chartreuse-brown discoloration in Winter (similar to many of the older forms of Arborvitae). The cultivar name of 'Winter Beauty' is a definite misnomer.
