large shrub/small tree close to house?

16 years ago

OK, yet another recommendation request:

I am looking for a plant to shade our outside air conditioning unit so as to save on energy costs. Which means that I need a rather large evergreen plant... a big shrub or a small tree. I'd like it to be somewhat fast-growing, but it can't have invasive, concrete-lifting roots because it will be so close to the house. It would be nice if it had some flower/showiness, but it CAN'T have much in the way of litter because of the proximity to the AC. This area gets full sun all afternoon.

Thanks guys!
