Suggestions for flower bed contents
I just removed 5 Nandina bushes from this area below my kitchen window. The ONLY sun that this area gets is about 90 minutes in the afternoon (between 4 pm and sun down). The sun comes from the direction of the top right hand corner of the picture. The middle window faces directly north so that afternoon sun is from the west and filtered through a gigantic sugar maple.
It's immediately beside my house entry that we use all the time. I'd like something that would have some interest year round. I have some Hostas that can go there but obviously they will not be green the entire year. I thought about a Mahonia (sp) but I'm really at a loss and I need to get something in this area that has a good design and will be attractive and work well with the conditions. Different layers/heights would be good too since what was there was about 4 ft tall and all one height.
Any suggestions? :)
