Good news! It lived! I let it grow out last year after I cut it down to the last two leaves per branch like sorce suggested.I have what I think is a boxwood. First thing I ever started cutting up in the hopes of starting a bonsai. It was a little aggressive and probably to much considering the top I left is slowly dying. I just got carried away...
Shit! That canopy there may be a little difficult to clean up...Good news! It lived! I let it grow out last year after I cut it down to the last two leaves per branch like sorce suggested.
I was able to get some back budding which I needed badly because it used to be a hedge.
Clipped it the same way again today, except I left a few more leaves on the really low buds that came in to encourage more growth.

Thanks for the info @sorce
Yeah the top is terrible but I like that base too.Shit! That canopy there may be a little difficult to clean up...
But I'll be damned if it aint the perfect size for that trunk!
If that low growth stays on push...
I'd open it up a bit more in there...maybe deleting a couple "in the way" trunks in a month or so...
Another good hard proper clean so you can leave it to its own Devices for a while without much trouble...
Lil strength gain.
Base is dope.
I am not enjoying colander growth.Nice!
My little Korean Boxwood has barely grown in 2 years now, since repotting into a small colander type pot...
It actually just started thowing a few shoots in late Sept.
I think its gonna take off next year.
