One or two companions for G.G. Gerbing?

Any ideas for one or two evergreen, full sun companions for several GG Gerbings in semi-open space? Area isn't an issue.

Possibly one to provide a surrounding to fill in any potentially leggy areas. And maybe one with relatively the same size to add a small portion of variety (preferably something with a white, summer flower) - Gardenia? Probably a 3:1 ratio of GG Gerbing to "Other".

Doubt this will be added, but if anyone has a late summer, white blooming suggestion, that would be great as well.

When you say full sun, do you mean afternoon or morning sun? I don't think either the azaleas or gardenias would appreciate afternoon sun. If morning then both should be fine and I'd recommend Gardenia jasminoides 'Radicans'.

RE: One or two companions for G.G. Gerbing?

Until a tree in the vicinity develops, it's mostly afternoon sun. Not ideal conditions, I know. However, spring & summer blooming (white) evergreen shrubs for this area are needed.

Whether for this particular area or not, white blooming azaleas will be a main feature of the property. Much of the area receives little sunlight (due to large oak trees).
