Suggest me a plant...

    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??

      Japanese maple........., or if you'd like a possible flowering plant suggestion, I'd like to suggest a Bee-Balm, or a Butterfly bush.  They're lovely.  Cannot think of any different evergreen plants from the most common planted.

      you could try planting some bamboo, do check the variety as they differ a lot, if you get one that spreads a lot that is not a problem as i have grown Indocalamus tessellatus Tessellatus which is not too vigorous and grows to about 7 feet, i have actually sunk a large container into the ground and grown it in that to stop the spread of the roots. Happy planting

    Not "leafy" but evergreen-- an Italian Cypress grows narrow and tall.

      Thanks but this doesn't suit the location, would kind of stand out and won't make a combination with other plants.

    Rosemary
    Rosmarinus officinalis is not tall enough but is about 24 inches wide, only reaches about 4 feet.

      Thanks Bob, I have made a note of this, I think I can use this plant at another location.

          Rosemary does indeed enhance lamb, good tip. It is a good decorative and culinary plant.

            And, fish and chicken. 

            Yes, fresh rosemary is the best!  Love it.smile

    You could plant a bay tree and prune it into shape?

      Izzy, thanks a lot for suggesting this plant! I think I will go for the bay tree. smile

    I agree that an Italian or Monterey cypress would be good but will get very tall. There are other evergreen shrubs that can be clipped and shaped. Other suggestions:
    Brush cherry (syzygium), "Sky pencil" holly, "Green Spires" euonymus, podocarpus macrophylla, and boxwood (buxus)or myrtus varieties. Ask at your nursery.

    Rosemary can be used with potatoes roasted in the oven.
