Answer: Korean Littleleaf Boxwood (Buxus microphylla koreana) is recommended by the University of Minnesota as the best boxwood for your growing region. This shrub grows 3-5' tall and can be sheared into a formal shape or allowed to grow naturally. You might also consider one of the dwarf hollies. Neither of these suggested plants has any maintenance requirements, aside from watering regularly and fertilizing each spring. Best wishes with your new plants!
