I need special full sun shrub or plant- ideas?
I am re-routing my backyard path and I need a couple of bushes or plants to fill in the pre-existing path area. This is a high visibility area which is in almost all-day sun (shade after 5 in the summer). My requirements are: Can't be taller than about 5 feet max, needs to be something pretty special with foliage color, bloom or something of interest since it is in a prime area of the yard. I would like it to be something unsusual or striking and something that is permanent (no annuals or perennials). I am drawing a complete blank. Help!
