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.
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.
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.
and you can use it with lamb to excellent effect
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.

I've often found that when I cook lamb, it has that strong, meaty smell which is still noticeable after I've sprinkled a bit more salt over it during the cooking process.Is there anything I can use to really reduce the strong meaty smell that lamb has?
