Evergreen hedge or shady spot
I need help choosing an evergreen shrub to hide the area under my neighbour's porch (see photo). The taller the better. I have tall, deciduous trees there (mostly oak) so it's quite shady in the summer. In winter, it gets some late morning/early afternoon sun. Some options I've found on the web are Viburnum rhytidophyllum, Agarista populifolia (Florida Leucothe), Illicium floridanum (Florida Anise Tree) and Ternstroemia gymnanthera (Japanese cleyera). Any of these sound good? Other suggestions? I'm in Chapel Hill, NC. Thanks!
