Medium Shrubs

Evergreen and deciduous shrubs that generally stay between about 5 to 8 feet high without any pruning whatsoever or with only very minimal pruning. Many of these medium-sized shrubs are well-suited to use as both formal and informal hedges, natural screens, as backdrops for perennial borders, and as specimen plants. They can also be used in large to very large containers to good effect. Some of these will be suitable for training into small to medium-sized tree standards and as smaller espaliers.
