    Description:

    A compact and hardy hybrid boxwood, great for pruning and shaping or for use as a trimmed hedge; if unpruned, grows more wide than tall, a broadlead evergreen with numerous landscape applications

    Ornamental Features

    Chicagoland Green Boxwood has forest green foliage. The small round leaves remain forest green throughout the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.

    Landscape Attributes

    Chicagoland Green Boxwood is a dense multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

    This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and can be pruned at anytime. It is a good choice for attracting bees to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

    Chicagoland Green Boxwood is recommended for the following landscape applications;

    • Mass Planting
    • Hedges/Screening
    • General Garden Use
    • Topiary

    Planting & Growing

    Chicagoland Green Boxwood will grow to be about 4 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

    This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
