*Boxwood 'Dee Runk' is reportedly the nicest of the columnar boxwoods tolerating shade and clay soils. Total height of 8-10 ft tall can be sheared shorter. Max width about two feet. Advantage over other upright boxwoods is dense growth that won't flop open. Will fit nicely next to the porch stairs and in the corner by the garage.
Balcony oriental style, decorated with wooden bars placed in terraces, which are used to support the placement of different plants. Shot at the top end with a tree and down the floor is covered with white pebbles.
