Ceccone check with Saunders Brothers Nursery. They are in zone 6, I believe, and are a part of a nation wide boxwood trial.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Formal Parterre Gardens Rule the Landscape
Louis XIII was a huge proponent of parterre gardens, and they peaked in popularity under his reign at the Palace of Versailles. His head gardener, Jacques Boyceau, was instrumental in further defining the "rules" for creating a parterre. Today, incorporating seating areas makes the formal garden more appealing.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: French Garden Style
Design the planting beds. French style is a study in geometry. Decide on the shapes you want for the planting beds, then make sure they're clearly defined. Edging these traditional parterres with low boxwood borders is a classic approach.
Laura Gaskill added this to Touches of Grandness for the Garden
Parterre. This classic, formal garden design is typically made up of hedges grown in symmetrical patterns and separated by gravel paths. A parterre is a brilliant way to add interest to a flat lawn, as shown here. Add a bench so you can enjoy the view.Learn more about parterre gardens

This formal garden could quite easily be recognized as just that! The hedges are manicured in such a unique design, and everything is perfectly symmetrical. No flowers are in sight, but the green theme is just as striking. The high hedge gives it that private and secluded air which suites the formal, sophisticated design.
