Answer: Unfortunately, based on your description of the planting location I am not able to make any specific recomendations -- that is just so difficult long distance. I would suggest you work with your local professional nursery staff to analyze the growing conditions and determine which plants might possibly thrive there, then make your selectin from among those. It is possible a yew or a holly might work, however it depends how much sun the area actually receives and how much competition there is from the tree as well. Also Monrovia is a wholesale only nursery and does not sell retail by catalog or online, so you would need to check local availability in any case, rather than order. You can locate retailers that carry Monrovia (and other) products using the zip code based search feature at
Best of luck with your landscaping!
