|Hello, I live in West Tennessee and would like some suggestions on what to plant in two large containers on my back patio. It receives at least 6 hours of full sun. In the past, I have had gardenia topiaries in them. I'd prefer some sort of an evergreen shrub or tree that maintains its color year round. I would like something that allows me to underplant for the spring and summer months. I am not a huge fan of dwarf spruce or juniper.
Thanks so much,

|Hi Lola and welcome to NGA!
I think a Magnolia grandiflora like Little Gem would be good. It's a slow grower likes full sun or partial shade and at maturity gets about 10 feet.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
