Ideas for Bush to Plant


tgoodchildslp@gmail.com added on September 17, 2016 | Answered

I need a 6' high bush for border in acid and clay soil, deep shade in morning turning to hot, direct sun in evening. The small leaf mountain laurel planted last year is just about dead. Drought and intense heat will kill it so it must be moved.

Weigela should work:

You could keep it pruned to 6' or choose one of the smaller varieties.

I have a Rose of Sharon shrub that does great in a similar situation to what you describe:
