Large Shrubs (over 8 feet high)
Evergreen and deciduous shrubs and small trees that naturally grow larger than about 8 feet high. Their size makes these plants well suited to use as formal and informal natural screens, specimen plants, larger hedges, and many can be trained into elegant single or multi-trunked tree forms and espaliers. These group often includes the fastest growing shrubs and some will make suitable specimens for large to very large containers when young.
