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!

For other ideas, visit the Monrovia Nursery website and do a plant search ( You'll find lots and lots of plants for the site you describe.
