need native/non-invasive shrub ideas
I have a slope that I want to put some native or at least non-invasive shrubs on. Right now there is creeping juniper, but it's dying and needs to be replaced. I wanted something a bit more interesting than just juniper, but I'm confused as to which shrubs are the better choices.
At first I considered spirea, but after googling I found that it is considered invasive. Then, cotoneaster, again, invasive.
My other requirements: full sun, tolerates strong wind, drought resistant, deer and/or groundhog resistant (if such a thing exists, which I doubt!), and easily located.
Any suggestions or links for further research?
