3' to 4' Cone Shaped Boxwood

I'm looking for a 3'-6" to 4' tall cone shaped topiary for the Los Angeles area. I'd like it to have the darkest green leaf possible. How would Buxus 'Green Mountain' and Buxus sempervirens Common Boxwood compare in this application? What are the differences? I've discounted 'Winter Gem' because it has lighter green leaves and might have trouble reaching the height.
Thanks in advance.

RE: 3' to 4' Cone Shaped Boxwood

The Buxus Microphylla 'Green Mountain' I have has dark green foliage with white variagation on mature leaves, and a slightly looser habit of growth than my Buxus Sempervirens 'Suffruticosa'. The 'Green Mountain' has been in the ground for two years and has grown about six-eight inches in that time.

Be prepared to wait or else shell out some dough for mature plants. Good luck.
