Hi, Dar, This is a puzzle. InHi, Dar, This is a puzzle. In fact, the circumstances of your situation—the space configuration, the potential height of a shrub or tree, and more—cause us to be a little hesitant to advise you of any particular plants, but instead to suggest that you visit a local nursery or garden shop, perhaps with a photo at hand, and see what the experts there would recommend. There might be some local "exotic" plants that thrive in your climate that we are not aware of. But we are curious! If indeed you do this, please tell us what your local resources recommend. Best wishes!
