Looks like a Boxwood to me. They come in several varieties. Some have yellow leaf margins, but that looks like a the traditional. The pictures are not great, but that is what it looks like. I have planted similar plants late in the year, and would doubt you would have trouble.

I agree...looks like Buxus (boxwood) from your pics. We don't have any problems here in zone 5 planting so late. As your nurseryman where you purchase the shrub about hardy varieties in your area though.

Boxwoods don't like the wind. Put a windscreen around them (burlap on a frame works) and/or spray with an anti dessicant.
