Foundation Landscape Questions... Starting small.
I have an area that is 16 ft 8 inches long by 3ft 6 inches wide. Ideally would like something that grows 4ft or less.
Here's a picture of the area:
& For some perspective here's a pic of the house:
I am considering blue baron rhododendrons, arctic rose azaleas, and some dwarf English boxwood.
I realize my area may not be wide enough, but my thought was I would just prune it to make it fit as it grows bigger.
I'm a newb. I really have no idea what I'm doing. This area doesn't get sun till around 1pm. I have a wooded lot across the street. I get full sun from like 1pm till 4pm. Approximately.

I'm in Central Massachusetts. The USDA zone finder says I'm in 5B? Seems like it was something different last time I looked. I just did the zone calculator today and that's what it says.
