Subject: Re: [CHAT] I need a suggestion

I am thinking that since it is on the corner of the house it needs to be 
tall and thin.  It can't get too wide because the pine tree that is giving 
it so much shade is only about 5 ft away. The pine base is further than that 
but the edge of the pine is about 5ft.  I want to still be able to walk 
through there to get to the side yard.
The thing I didn't like about the snow ball is because it doesn't get enough 
sun it is very limp and leggy... doesn't bloom well and old.  I am betting 
that it is almost 30 years old.  Probably one of the original foundation 
plantings.  I thought of a pyramidal holly of some kind.  I just was looking 
at Viburnums.  I am open to suggestions.
