|We live in southern Florida, Zone 10. Can you suggest some shrubs that we could use for a garden renovation that won't grow too tall? I am looking for something to create a low hedge 2 to 3 feet high to act as a border around our walkways and patio area. The area has full sun. Drought tolerant would be preferable but we are installing and irrigation system. Thanks!|
|There are several plants you might consider: Spirea japonica 'Anthony Waterer' is a dwarf variety of Spirea. It grows 2-3' tall and wide, has reddish tinged foliage and maroon flowers.
Other plants to consider include Santolina, Rosemary, Lavender and Sarcococca. Each of these plants can be sheared or pruned to a height and width of 2-3' and all grow well in your gardening region.
Hope these suggestions are helpful!
