Thanks for writing. You should be successful with just about any boxwood variety for your topiaries, as long as you choose a variety that grows as large as you want your topiaries to be. For example, if you want a 4-foot-tall topiary, avoid dwarf selections such as 'Green Pillow' or 'Justin Brouwers'.
