Any ideas?

I want an evergreen specimen shrub that will eventually reach a height of no more than 5-6 foot. It has to be fairly narrow, say no more than 2 foot across though I don't mind trimming it. I don't want any sort of conifer. Has anyone got any suggestions? Thanks!

Please can anyone identify this plant? It has seed pods on with small pea-like seeds inside.

...........and it is definitely not a tree. When I bought it, I was told it would eventually reach a metre and it has just about done that in 6 years. Dies back completely in the winter.

When I say it sends out runners, I mean a couple of stems a year grow about 4-6 inches from the base, which I can then dig out and use as a new plant. It certainly isn't invasive at all.

Please could anyone tell me what this shrub is. It is deciduous. New leaf growth comes as a salmon colour then turns green. It is about a metre tall and send out runners whch I then turn into new plants. Thanks!

Are there any ferns which are evergreen, hardy and grow to 3-4 feet? I haven't got any ferns.

Any ideas?
