The Q&A Archives: Shrub For Sunny Wall

Question: I am looking for a shrub to cover a sunny wall.

It cannot have agressive roots and will grow at a moderate pace to at least 8 feet--

I have podocarpus, which are working great, but need a little variety in texture---a boxwood? Juniper? Any suggestions?

Answer: You might consider pyracantha, Choisya ternata (Mexican orange), Photinia, Tecoma capensis (cape honeysuckle) or Viburnum tinus. These are all well behaved hedging plants with moderate to fast growth once established. All will grow well in your gardening region.
