Answer: A couple of options are witch hazel (there are many named varieties) and the hollies, 'Blue Prince' and 'Blue Princess' (Ilex x meserveae). Ferns also sound like they would thrive in this situation, but they wouldn't make an impact in the winter landscape. During the first and second winters your shrubs are in their new home, water them well in the fall, take extra care to protect them from the harsh winter winds, so they have the best opportunity to survive the winter in thrive in the spring. Enjoy!
