|I'm looking for a shade shrub or plant that would get as big as 3'-4' in height in Zone 4 (other than something in the Evergreen family). Doesn't necessarily have to flower, but that would be preferable. Thank you!

|DWARF GLOBE ARBORVITAE (Thuja occidentalis 'Dwarf Globe') grows 2-4 feet tall; LITTLE HEATH PIERIS (Pieris japonica 'Little Heath') grows 3-4' tall and flowers in the spring; PURPLELEAF WINTERCREEPER (Euonymus fortunei 'Coloratus') has a mounding growth habit, 2' tall and 8' wide; SIBERIAN CYPRESS (Microbiota decussata) grows 18' tall and 6' or more wide. For other ideas, visit the Monrovia Nursery website and do a plant search (www.monrovia.com) You'll find lots and lots of plants for the site you describe.
