Hi Guys --

I initially wanted to plant two Nicolais right next to each other to fill this space. A few people at Home Depot seem to think provided I have a focused drip system, the roots won't be an issue and it won't become a monster if I consistently trim.

Ideally, I just want it growing taller not wider.

Some of the pictures I've googled seems to show this plant just "takes over".

Am I biting off or starting a major problem by planting two of these here?

If its okay to move forward and its manageable, what suggestions do you have?

If its best to avoid, what other tree/shrub alternatives would you plant?
