I am looking for a full, dense shrub that is 4-5' high max for a space that gets morning sun until about 2pm. I live in Denver. Flowering would be ideal, but no fruit as I have a dog in the backyard. The shrubs will be used to hide the air conditioner/storage area in the back yard.

Attached are 2 fact sheets on shrubs, deciduous and evergreen. This should help in deciding what to plant to hide the A/C.
