I've had great success with Abelia Biflora in the past--w/ one shrub growing to 6' ht. & just as wide in almost-full sun. This year's new transplant (in 1 gallon container from professional nursery) struggled in the summer heat, but will probably do fine next year once it's more established. Suggestion: might prefer late afternoon shade in Zone 8 (the TX hill country).
