The Q&A Archives: drought tolerant shrub

Question: I live in Bryan and have a small 2' by 1' patch by my front door that's begging for a shrub. Its in total shade most of the day and faces north. It needs to be drought tolerant and not need much attention.

Answer: Katja,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

That is a pretty small area for a shrub to fit in. You might get a Fatsia or a Gold Dust Aucuba to work there if it can be a little wider than 1X2.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
