3' shrub for this area...
Since this is at the main side entrance to our home. My husband doesn't wish for something flanking the right of the yellow junk art flower to be anything but a shrub that will have structure and not a bare area in our hardscape as the left side is when the Hibiscus Rose Mallow hasn't show up yet.
Space 6' deep by 4'wide basically. Something later in bloom possibly since I have a snow fountain weeping cherry down from that area in the same bed. As well as a SEM False Spirea and an American Wisteria tree trained. But since the cherry is an early bloomer...if it's something that blooms...maybe something later on in the season. For additional color there.
The reason for 3' tall is so it doesn't block our house number on the oar. I would be okay with I think...even a shrub that didn't bloom if it had a pretty variegated leaf. I also would hope to have it eventually cover part of the rock that is also there in time.
Contemplated a Euonymus variety...having the variegated yellow leaf to go along with the yellow metal flower. But wasn't sure I might be over looking something that would work better for us that I don't know about.
