Shrub near house?
We are renovating the front of our 1930s house, and have a small corner put aside in the gravel drive for what I thought was going to be a tree, but now think maybe should be a shrub. It's right next to the house, hence root worries etc. I'd like something that won't go too bushy outwards, as the drive is small; however, there's a bin store next to it and I'd like the shrub to be visible over that - i.e., something with reasonable height. The rest of the garden has a mix of Japanese blood grass, succulents and sempervivums, so something architectural/modern would be good. Any thoughts? Thank you!
