Replacement for Euyonimus
I have two large Euyonimus bushes on the two front corners of the house. They are about 40 years old and their roots start to undermine the house. They need to be trimmed about 4 times a year and are a pain. Their redeeming factor is that they have leaves in the wintertime and they give shelter to the birds.
I live in zone 6, the house faces north-west, which is also our predominant weather side. Has anybody an idea with what to replace it? It should not be a bush which needs a military haircut. The house and front entrance need a natural, softer look.
Thanks for your suggestions.
