Suggest me a plant that has a maximum spread of 2.5 feet and can grow at least 6 to 7 feet tall?
A human being. After all we are pretty much just sophisticated plants.
Nandina domestica, common name Heavenly Bamboo. "Moyers Red" is a standard size variety which should fit your height and width requirements and has brilliant red winter color in zones 5-7.
There are many varieties of ornamental grasses that would fit the bill. Ornamental grasses are easy to plant, low maintence, and complement many other plants.
Well, the first that comes to mind is a Sunflower. Depending on the variety...they either grow 6-8 or 10-15 feet tall....and the birds love them...great way to attract wildlife to your yard. Many vegetables fit your requirements...and would produce food as well.
A poplar tree will not cover more than 2.5 feet and can easily grow up to 10 - 15 feet. You can keep them at any height you want by pruning. They don't like to spread and grow moderately fast.
The Japanese maple, Acer palmatum, is small and colorful. While some varieties can grow as tall as 25 feet, at least three remain between 6 and 10 feet tall. Acer palmatum 'Oshu Shidare' has pea-green bark and leaves that turn from cherry red to green and then back again. It prefers a spot in full sun to partial shade in a well-draining, slightly acidic soil. Acer palmatum 'Olson's Frosted Strawberry' has foliage that emerges strawberry red and remains tinged with pink throughout the spring. It prefers a partially shady spot with a well-draining, slightly acidic soil. Both varieties are hardy in USDA Zones 6 through 9. Acer palmatum var. dissectum is also known as the threadleaf Japanese maple. Its finely cut foliage turns a golden color in the fall. It also produces tiny reddish purple flowers in the spring. It prefers a moist but well-draining soil in full sun or partial shade and is hardy in USDA Zones 6 through 8.

I want to fill some empty space in my garden with a plant that has a maximum spread of 2 to 2.5 feet and a minimum height of 6 to 7 feet. An evergreen leafy plant would be better. Any idea??
