recommendations for mounding shrubs/shade tolerant?

Posted by loris Z6 NJ (My Page) on

My husband wants to plant a few shrubs with a mounding habit, and thinks most of the native shrubs we have tend to have a more open habit. Any recommendations for a shrub at least 3 feet tall that will tolerate at least some shade? Our soil is acidic and most of it in this area is moist (although we may want a shrub or two in a drier part of the yard).

Thanks. -- Lori

At Home Depot this past week they have had Canadian Hemlock in a dwarf, mounding form. It is called 'Jeddloh'!

What about Wild Hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens)?
