The Q&A Archives: Shrub That Will Get Only Late Afternoon Sun

Question: I need a shrub that will grow quickly. The sight gets late afternoon sun and is near cedar trees. We need to screen off the neighbors garage.
I recently drove down Highway 99 and nearly crashed my car when I came across Monrovia. I couldn't go by without stopping. As a rabid gardener, I have seen gardener's Mecca.
Thanks for the help.

Answer: Glad you're such a loyal Monrovia customer, and happy to hear you found a nearby nursery featuring Monrovia stock. Sounds like the site is more shady than sunny, so some screening shrubs to consider include photinia, laurel, pieris and escallonia. All are broadleaf evergreen shrubs, and the escallonia will produce lovely pale pink flower spikes in the summer. Enjoy your garden!
