Is it too late to plant shrubs?

Do you guys think I could still get away with planting some shrubs along my foundation? I see that the weather is going to be in the 60's next week, but I'm not sure how long the shrubs need before freezing temps.

I'm thinking just the basic stuff like a few holly bushes and maybe some other type of evergreen.

Now would be a great time. As long as the ground is not frozen at root level, you can plant most types of trees and shrubs. Mulching well now will help when the ground does freeze.
