Margi, this is Buxus 'Glencoe' (Chicagoland Green Boxwood). It is a very hardy selection developed by the Chicago Botanical Garden. There are several varieties that you could substitute, depending on your zone and the availability. I also use 'Green Mountain', 'Green Velvet', and 'Wintergreen'.

Re-reading your comment... 3' will be a squeeze, but I'd probably do it. The boxwood will take up 1' and the hydrangeas get 3-4' wide... so plant the hydrangeas as close to the fence as you can. What area are you in? Just wanted to make sure the boxwood & hydrangeas will work in your zone. My new favorite hydrangea variety is Hydrangea 'Let's Dance in the Moonlight'.

This might be among my favorites. Love the texture even though it is all green.

Take the white flowers out and this would do for the front. There is a little gradation in height, which we like.
