Shrubs for south facing wall


Hello, can you suggest a dense, flowering shrub for beneath a south facing window. This is to replace overgrown evergreens that provided insulation below the window. Looking for structure and colour in bushes that can be maintained at about 3 or 3 and a half feet tall. Thank you!


Thanks for your question about small flowering shrubs for beneath a south-facing window.

Here is a link to a site that might provide some suitable candidates for your consideration:

Also included below is a link below to a previous post.  The comprehensive post contains in turn a link to our guides on evergreen shrubs (in case you decide to go that route) and shrubs for various light conditions as well as to an earlier post about small flowering shrubs (However, please note that the post suggests an Oakleaf hydrangea ‘Sikes Dwarf.’  While Oakleaf hydrangeas are beautiful and desirable four-season shrubs, they are liable to suffer leaf burn and flower fading in full sun; a location with morning sun only or dappled sunlight is preferable).

We hope you are able to find something that thrives and that delights you year-round.
