Trio of Low Water Plants for Deciduous Screen

This trio of summer-loving shrubs makes a nice mixed hedge where winter screening isn't essential as all players have deciduous foliage. The China rose and Miscanthus 'Morning Light' provide blooms and frothy texture from late spring through fall. In high summer, the showy purple spires of the chaste tree provide pleasing contrast to the single blooms of the rose.
