evergreen flowering shrub for full sun?
i had planned a "glade" of rhododendrons along what we had thought was our shady driveway. Well, that was back in November and i didn't think about how much higher the sun would be in spring. Now the sun is so high above the surrounding trees that we have full sun in that area, from 10am-6pm.
I posted on the Azalea/Rhododendron forum to ask whether the rhododendrons that are described as sun-tolerant would be able to tolerate that much sun. It sounds like some hybrids might, but I'm not sure I'm green-fingered enough to try that!
So, I'm looking for some full-sun, evergreen, flowering shrubs. Our soil is clay-ish but has lots of tree mulch mixed in, and its quite a slope, so drainage is a little better.
So far I have found abelia, viburnum tinus, viburnum prague. Any other suggestions would be great. Esh, are there any evergreen natives that would work there?
