Rhodies for East facing foundation bed
We recently had the remainder of our gutters installed so I am ready to landscape the east side of our house/garage. The area to be covered is 27 feet from the wiegela on the left to the A/C unit and then another 15' from the A/C unit to the deck on the right. The bed gets dappled/filtered sunlight from sunrise to 11 am, full sun from 11 to 1:30 pm and then shade (but not dark shade) for the rest of the day. The soil is well-draining prime Illinois farmland soil, but I have not checked PH. I need large shrubs to be seen from the road (gravel) and to be in proportion with the wall. I have not ever planted any rhododendrons, but I love the look and would appreciate the evergreen foliage. Any suggestions would be appreciated, I also posted this on the hydrangea forum because both plants would give me the look I am after.
