Foundation shrubs for shade

Posted by pmsmith2032 5b (My Page) on

I am looking for suggestions for a group of shrubs that will be planted along the north side of our yard. This area is our sideyard, so any shrub needs to be fairly narrow or prunable (less than 6' or so) and must tolerate mostly shade (side gets some sun in late afternoon). Right now I am leaning toward Mapleleaf viburnum but am open to suggestions. Ideally I'd like something with a lot of spring and/or fall interest. Thanks!

RE: Foundation shrubs for shade

You might consider the Hydrangea quercifolia 'Pee Wee'
or the Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes'. Both of these are dwarf versions of Oakleaf Hydrangea.
