I’m looking for evergreen shrubs nearby my black walnut tree that are resistant to juglone.

Gardening at the base of a black walnut tree is a challenge.

Considering also that you have cold winters, I recommend Technito Globe Arborvitae. It is an evergreen with a smaller mature size that won’t require pruning. For more ideas, check out this link from the Morton Arboretum. If you decide to go with deciduous shrubs, you will have a number of plants to choose from.

Thanks for writing!
