Chicagoland Boxwood was chosen by the Chicago Botanic Garden for outstanding cold hardiness. This resilient boxwood holds its glossy green foliage well in winter. Resembling an English boxwood in appearance, it has a uniform oval habit making it a fantastic low hedge, either sculpted or informal. An excellent foundation plant or background for perennials. Slow growing, only growing approximately 2-3″ per year. Evergreen.
