Right shrub for the location

Asked March 31, 2019, 8:26 PM EDT

Have a place in front of the house about 24' long and 2' deep. What type of shrub would work here? Live in Dallas. Looking for something that stays green, year around, and gets to about 3' to 4' tall. Replacing dead/dying shrubs. There's a border about 2' from the front of the house and the existing shrubs are within that 2'×24' area. Thanks

A great place to start your search would be the Texas Smartscape website (www.txsmartscape.com). From there you can search the plant database based on your specific wants (evergreen; 3'-4' tall) + needs (light requirement where these shrubs will be planted).

Additionally, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center has a great plant database that you can enter the wants and needs and get more suggestions (https://www.wildflower.org/plants/).

Good Luck!
