Create a natural privacy screening area for your sunny space. Envision a lush oasis with a blend of ground cover interspersed with short perennials such as small Coreopsis and Dwarf Catmint, leading to medium-height varieties like Daylily and compact Coneflower for a burst of color and texture. Enhance privacy and visual interest with a flowering shrub such as a lilac or rose, accompanied by an upright shrub for structure. Complete the space with the year-round greenery of an upright evergreen like Alberta Spruce.
