Sorry if this is the wrong spot as I'm looking for partial shade plants. We bought our house a year ago and the couple had 4 extremely overgrown boxwood in the westward facing front yard. I got 2 pulled up last spring and the other two this past weekend. The brick planters they are in are 4x12 and the other is 4x16 with a concrete fountain in the center. Planters are separated by the walkway leading to my front door and behind the planter's is my front porch where we want to put a bistro table and chairs.
I planted things in the spring in the smaller planter and it did not meet my wife's expectations. Not enough color, looks dead in winter, etc...
The question...now what?
She is leaving it up to me to plant things and I'm at a loss and the only help that I'm getting is more color and i don't want it to look dead in the winter. Some plants that I like.
