Boxwood - Chicagoland Green, Buxus 'Glencoe', is a fine textured evergreen shrub that tolerates pruning and shearing well. Chicagoland Green is one of our favorites to be used as a border or hedge. Boxwood requires well-drained soil and prefers shading and wind protection in winter, if grown on an exposed site. This Boxwood tolerates some drought and will grow in dry soil but prefers well-drained, loamy, sandy or clay soils with a pH of acidic to slightly alkaline. Chicagoland Green is a medium sized shrub and known for its cold hardiness and good winter color. It grows with a uniform, oval, rounded growth habit and will reach 3' tall by 5' wide in approximately 15 years.
