Three shrubs I am considering...pros and cons of each
I have a ravine hill beside the yard. Most wooded...but the area beside the waterfall is not.
I have a bird feeding patio not far from this area I wish to plant a shrub that in all honesty will most likely not get pruned once in due to the steepness of the hill. Figured to put rocks up against the rootball in a retaining wall sort of way to help hold the plant on the hill and the dirt not washing out from under it.
Up for consideration...
Winterberry: because of the berries it produces come winter. Think it would add some beautiful color as well as an additional food source for the birds.
Weeping butterfly bush: I have admired one since someone from town landscaped with it and I researched what it was.
Weigela: my husband is fond of the neighbors shrub.
Any reason that I should take one off my list or consider one over the other?
