native alternative to boxwood?

Asked June 11, 2015, 2:16 PM EDT

I have a corner property and I need to install a hedge no taller than 3 ft. although miniature boxwood has been recommended, I would prefer to use a PA native plant that will hopefully attract birds or pollinators. Any suggestions?

Here is a link to a native plant database in Pennsylvania called IConservePA. You type in your conditions and get a list of plants that will thrive in those conditions. The Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center has a plant finder database, and also lists vendors known to stock the plants of interest.
