Subject: tall plant for part shade :
Comments: Hi,I am looking for a vertical/columnar bush for a narrow space that will tolerate shade. The is little opportunity for direct light. I am already using sky pencil holly in another spot. Suggestions are appreciated. I am considering the Ron Williams fineline buckthorn. Height max should be around 10- minimum 5. I live in zone 5 in PA
