Shrubs that can handle the snow
I need some suggestions for shrubs that can handle an avalanche of snow from my roof. Criteria -
If they flower, the flowers must be white
Must stay short - 18" max
We have replaced the hard scape in front of the house. When we added the solar panels to our roof, it changed the trajectory of the snow and the snow came crashing down into the front walkway. The walkway is now moved - it is now safe to walk in winter! I want to add some shrubs to the expanded garden area, but now the shrubs will be in the path of the roof snow. I'm also going to add perennials, but things that will die down to the ground.
Ideas? Things I was thinking of - blue star juniper, cotoneaster, silver mound artemisia (I know, not a shrub, but kinda looks like one.)
