Recommendation for difficult spot
I've had little success with yews as a foundation plant on the north side of my house, so I'm looking for suggestions for a shrub that is not real fussy about soil and other conditions.
1. Deciduous or non-decidious (either is fine)
2. About 4'tall and 3'wide
3. Dense habit (to block the ugly house foundation)
4. Non leggy
3. Hardy, dependable, and not fussy about soil, etc.
I was thinking of either burning bushes or boxwoods. What do you think?
