Looking for good suggestions on what plant will suit my needs: small evergreen flowering shrub, no more than 2 feet tall and 2 feet wide, that will grow well in clay soil within Zone 6.
Which Plant Will Work
How much sun and when? If it's morning sun or filtered afternoon sun, an azalea planted on a 6-8" layer of rich, well-draining humus soil would work. Azalea's have a platter root system...shallow but wide spread. Evergreen and bloom 2-3 weeks in spring...depending on weather and variety.
With a little amending of the soil, Nandina "Firepower" will give you year around color, no blooms but tons of color.
