Can anyone recommend Shrubs, plants, flowers or a tree to put against this wall in my backyard. It faces West so will only get afternoon sun.

thank you,

RE: Suggestions for planting against West facing wall

Matt, where are you in CA. ? And you might try posting this on the discussion side - you'll probably get more suggestions.

Personally, I think a wide, curving bed with a couple of purple buddleias would look nice. You could plant some shasta daisies in front of them, or some daylilies. Once established, they both are fairly drought tolerant like the buddleias.
