Compact shrubs for wow factor.

I've got a small area of bare soil close to a driveway which I like to brighten with shrubs/perennials. Shrubs compact about 3 ft x 3 ft to give a wow factor. My other plants in that boarder include grasses, salvias, verbena (tall ones and compact ones), geraniums and bulbs. Anyone have ideas of shrubs/perennials with a wow factor/


  • What about Gaura lindheimeri? Flowers from May to September, also white varietiesimage



  • Thanks Ashleigh 2..That's a beauty of a Gaura. The write up is very positive and its compact too.

    Thankds Verdun...Abelia is pretty too easy to grow. Love the colours. I have some penstemones growing in that boarder.

    I've come across Weigela 'All summer red' compact shrub in the current garden magazine.
