Answer: The nandina may or may not be evergreen for you, in a cold winter it is likely to drop some foliage. For a sunny space with heat reflecting off the wall of the house, I would suggest using junipers or possibly yews or possibly Pieris if you would like a flowering evergreen. There are cultivars that would mature to under seven feet or just about there. Your local professional nursery staff and/or county extension may have other suggestions based on a more detailed understanding of the growing conditions where you want to plant and your design goals.
