Then I think your best bet would be viburnum odoratisimum. It's evergreen, medium fast growing, easily trimmed and available in Tampa. It gets small white flowers in spring. You could start with some 3 gallon size plants, but these may only start at 2' tall. If your budget allows, you could go to a 7 gallon size where the plants would be more like 3 1/2 to 4' tall.
