Ruth,

It can be used as a foundation plant if the spot gets plenty of sunlight. Keep it at least 5 feet from the building and things should work out fine. It would prefer to be kept about 6-8 feet in width so if you try to keep one 3-4 feet that may be too much pruning.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
