Chicagoland Green Boxwood is a selected hybrid from the Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe, Illinois. It is an excellent cold-hardy cultivar and extremely uniform in its growth. Responds well to pruning.
Prune if desired in late winter to maintain intended shape. May bronze slightly in winter sun.
Through the years, the boxwood has been associated with formal gardens. Boxwood parterres and hedges can be seen in many of the great gardens of Europe and America. Colonial Williamsburg, especially around the Governor’s Mansion, offers wonderful examples of formal boxwood use.
