Shrubs for Shade?

Posted by on June 23rd 2012

The Question:

We have a very shaded area in the back of our yard, and are looking for some shrubs that would help provide a screen between our yard and the neighbor’s. Any suggestions for something that would grow around 6′ high (ideally) and be happy in the undergrowth of several trees?

—Lauri Kraft

Our Answer:

Hi Lauri, I few deciduous shrubs come to mind. Hedge Cotoneaster Wentworth Viburnum (would eventually get larger than 6′, but could be trimmed back) Aronia, Chokeberry
