Perfect as a vertical accent in tight spaces, Straight Talkā„¢ is only 2’ wide and tightly upright. Cold hardy and drought tolerant, it’s easy-to-grow in a wide range of soils and tolerates urban conditions. Flowers are white and followed by black fruit.

At first I planted these bushes by the road. But that didn’t seem right so I moved them to the east edge of the yard.

This planting is in the Yard border garden .
