hi, I'm looking to place a perennial flowering plant to partially cover the sight of a compost heap, something similar to a rose of sharon perhaps with good flowering period; around 6' by 6'would be roughly right.The prob with Rose of Sharon is the issue of potential seedlings sprouting, which I would want to avoid. Any ideas for alternatives?



Aucuba japonica....if you keep it pruned. Fatsia japonica would be another good one.

Abelia x grandiflora ?

Hypericum 'Hidcote' the non-invasive shrub related to Rose of Sharon.

Or how about Eleagnus, a shrub with a scent to die for in November
