World's Largest Boxwood

Record #:
The largest boxwood in the world sits on the lawn of Don Walser in Lexington. It is 8 ft. 7 in. in height and 71 ft. 3 in. in circumference. Government representatives wanted to place it on the grounds of the Lincoln Memorial when it was under construction, but the size made it impossible to ship by rail or truck. The whole shrub is growing from one stem.
