Answer: There are so many plants to choose from! There are many types of dwarf evergreen shrubs, including hollies, spruces, pines, false cypress, and others. Choose plants that remain small, rather than relying on frequent pruning to keep them to a manageable size. Azaleas and spirea are also good choices. Perennials include coreopsis, echinacea, sedum, asters, Shasta daisies, veronica, and rudbeckia.
Be sure to place plants at least a foot and preferably further from your foundation, and preferably away from the eaves. You want them far enough away to receive rainfall, otherwise you'll have to water them frequently. And if you don't have gutters, you don't want gushing water to fall on them from the roof during heavy rains.
