Can anyone share their experiences with this variety of boxwood? I am in a zone 4 climate with good winters! We always get snow and its usually pretty cold. Needless to say, you don't see a lot of boxwoods in this neck of the woods. I'm looking at a walkway to the front of a large, old house on main street. These would go right next to the city sidewalk on either side of the entrance walk. There are maples trees further down the street on either side that would provide a fair amount of shade. The lit. says this variety is both shade tolerant and cold hardy. I was wondering if anyone has planted these in similar situations that could report on their success. Also, being right next to the city sidewalk and front walk, they would get a fair amount of snow load from shoveling.
