evergreen for perennial border?
I moved to a new house this summer and want to redesign a perennial border. Right now it all dies down to the ground so it is a big flat dirt area winter and spring. I'd like to make it more interesting all year round.
Here is what I am looking for:
Evergreen plants/small shrubs that would do well in a perennial border. Need something that is not more than 3-4' high and not huge spread. Interesting foliage as background for perennials in spring/summer. The area is mostly shaded.
Any ideas for zone 5?--anyone have good luck with certain plants looking nice all year round in their gardens?
