Pembrokeshire, United Kingdom
Container evergreen of restricted width.
I'm looking for a shrub that will grow in a container not much over a foot across, in shade until late lunchtime and full sun then until evening (if we ever get any!)It is to make a screen between some steps and the water butt and will need to be kept no more than 18" wide and around three or four feet tall. Must withstand strong wind.
Am coming round to thinking it is a choice between lonicera nitida, which is boring all year, or a sarcococca, but have never grown the latter - which variety would be best, and would it be OK in that position?
