Seeking Help Finding........

WAYNE_RMay 12, 2005

Moved into a new house last fall. Starting to do the landscaping. Need all the help I can get.

Section I am currently working on faces East and gets good morning sun. Total shade from noon on.

Looking for what I refer to as an "ACCENT PLANT - BUSH".

In the section already completed I planted-


Mountain Fire Pieris

Pieris Japonica "Mountain Fire"

semi-shade, slow grower, 5'x 5'.

On either side of Pieris I have planted hostas. The front of section is planted with shade tolerant annuals.

Looking for an "ACCENT PLANT - BUSH", something different like the Pieris.

Azalea & Rhododendron are not options for they will make up most of the next bed.

If you know of mail order information for recommended plant please include that information.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Does it need to be evergreen or can it be deciduous? Blooms? What size are you wanting - smaller than the 5x5 pieris or same? So, it does get 4-5 hours of morning sun?
