tall but narrow
I have several places ranging from mostly shady to mostly sunny where I could use something with some height (maybe 5-10'), but very shallow (like 1-3'). I'm not finding much that grows that way naturally. I am not a fan of pruning, but in addition to putting up trellises with climbing vines and upright evergreens, I need some suggestins for woody shrubs that I can prune narrow but tall. Any suggestions? (By the way, I don't want to shear anything...too formal for my place.) I made an impulse purchase of a pieris already, 8'h by 6'w, I think the tag said. Would it look ok pruned to a depth of 2-3 feet?
