If you appreciate your boxwoods as much as I do, be aware there is a fungal blight attacking the boxwoods in Surry County and in Winston-Salem.
Tips include making sure air can circulate through the boxwoods. Clean your clippers before moving to a new boxwood.
My unproven theory on the spread: lawnmowing crews carry the fungs from yard to yard on their equipment.
Below is a good article in the Winston-Salem Journal about the blight and care for the bushes.
