Could you recommend colorful dwarf shrubs? Something 2 to 2 1/2 feet tall and wide?
Offerings of dwarf shrubs are plentiful from growers, so there are many to choose from. They’ve become trendy and desired. If for full sun, consider Kaleidoscope or Confetti abelia. I love the colorful foliage of these, plus their small, white flowers. There are many planted along the walls of Oakland Cemetery. Then there’s Pugster Blue butterfly bush, Diamond Spire gardenia, and loropetalum- Purple Daydream or Dwarf Crimson Fire. Purple Pixie dwarf loropetalum has a weeping form, which is neat. Soft Touch hollies offer soft foliage and resist common pests and diseases. And what about ornamental grasses? Pink muhly stays a bit more compact, and carex is nice, but prefers partial shade.

Rapper Gunna drops new song addressing YSL RICO trial, snitching allegations
ATLANTA - Rapper Gunna has been catching flack since releasing his first music video after making a plea deal to avoid jail time in the YSL RICO trial. The song called "Bread and Butter" seems to be his attempt at clearing the air, suggesting he didn't snitch on anyone involved in the case against members of what the DA has called the Young Slime Life gang. Instead, he opted for an Alford plea, or "best-interest plea," back on Dec. 7. It allowed Gunna, whose real name is Sergio Giovanni Kitchens, to maintain his innocence while acknowledging that it was in his best interest to plead guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge.
