Answer: For a small shrub you might look at boxwood, a very slow growing evergreen. Or you might consider dwarf Alberta spruce which is slow growing but would need to be pruned to stay that small. You could also use yews, however they too would require pruning to stay that size. Of the three, the yews would be the most reliable and easiest to grow. Another option although deciduous might be the naturally smaller summer blooming spireas. Your local nursery staff may also have some suggestions.
