tall shrub for shade
We live near Chicago and I am looking for a shrub to put in a corner of the yard to hide a telephone pole. I would like it to be at least 8 ft. tall. The corner is shaded and there is a large Oak tree about 10 ft. away. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Not exactly a shrub, but a climbing hydrangea might do well there, either up the telephone pole or on a trellis. Indian hawthorn might work as well. Sky pencil holly would also be an interesting choice.
