Small shrubs, those five feet or less when mature, which are good choices for Denver include Peking cotoneaster, redtwig and yellowtwig dogwood, buckthorn, buffaloberry, elderberry, lilac, Siberian peashrub, staghorn sumac, mountain mahogany and several viburnums. You might also consider evergreen shrubs including arborvitae, several types of spreading juniper, mugo pines and many different dwarf conifers. Broadleaf evergreen shrubs include mentor barberry, Oregon grape holly, curleaf mountain mahogany, pyracantha, Sarcoxie and Manhattan euonymus. Bulbs can be planted in September in your new gardening region. Enjoy your landscape!
