suggestions needed for shrubs along a deck
I have pulled out the original shrubs that required ongoing hedging maintenance. I just need a few suggestions: I first considered placing a limelight hydrangea on either side of the deck steps, but that leaves empty unattractive spaces during the winter. The back yard by the deck recieves mostly sun. I was thinking of the medium sized encore azaleas. My back yard is not very deep, so I do not want shrubs with a wide spread. I am open to any ideas.
Thanks in advance.
