Shrub Suggestion

Post by jmcgee » Wed Sep 04, 2013 12:16 am

I am located in Richmond Va, and would like to plant a sculpted shrub along my property line. I would prefer something fragrant, possibly flowering. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

How tall are you looking for? Do you want it for screening purposes? Here are some suggestions of different possibilities:

Flowering: Althaea 'Diana', Hydrangea 'Limelight', Double Knockout Rose
Evergreen: Tsuga canadensis, Ilex fosteri
Fragrant: Viburnum carlesii, Viburnum x burkwoodii, Viburnum x carlcephalum
