Convert your compact sunny screening area into a charming space with a mix of short and medium perennials that will provide continuous blooms and vibrant color. Next, introduce a large flowering shrub as a focal point along with smaller shrub(s) to give the space added texture. Complete the design with the year-round structure of an upright evergreen such as pyramidal Arborvitae.
