The Q&A Archives: Evergreen Shrub For Zone 1

Question: What is a good shrub(s) which DO NOT lose their leaves in winter, at least 6' tall, and will provide a privacy barrier in Zone 1?

Answer: My number one choice is Escallonia. It has glossy green leaves and provides pink blooms in summer. A second choice is Viburnum tinus, with stiff, deep green leaves, and white flower clusters in the spring. Both will do well in your gardening zone.
