Does anyone grow boxwood successfully? My friend lives in Kenner, and she asked me if boxwood would do well in her yard. I think she is in zone 8b.
She wants to plant evergreen shrubs along her brick fence - any recommendations?

Thank you!

Toward the lower edge of their range, JAPANESE BOXWOODS need better drainage than elsewhere. 9A is listed as their absolute limit. With afternoon shade and adequately raised beds, I think they'll be fine in Kenner.

Drive uptown, and look at the boxwoods growing on St. Charles. That should give you an idea which sitings work, and which don't.
