Question: Would like a shrub(s) for a flower bed with 4-6 ft of space. These would be planted in front of window with medium to full afternoon sun. The shrub should probably not grow to over 2 1/2 foot, but could trim if needed, and roots are in sandy soil. I would like something that comes back every year and can withstand the Texas freezes and the hot Texas summers, also possibly something that blooms. Thanks for your opinions.

Answer: Brandy,
That is a difficult set of criteria for any plant. I suggest either a dwarf yaupon or prostrate type of juniper although they would not bloom. Another option is to plant a Carolina jessamine and shear it to form a low shrub.
