Replacement from Boxwood blight

posted by: ALL50 on 09.25.2013 at 09:39 am in Shrubs Forum

I'm looking for fellow devastated gardeners. I've now lost over 80 dwarf English boxwood to the blight. Photos show the rapid, about 3-4 weeks of the loss. It has travelled from the back yard to one side and part of the front. I still have another 60+ that aren't infected yet, but I'm not hopeful. I'm looking for suggestions what I can replace it with on my patio garden, that is evergreen and dwarf. The boxwood blight spores live in the soil for 5 years, I'm looking at digging out the gardens and replacing the soil if I can't find a replacement plant. Anyone have any help?
