Answer: The aucuba will do well in deep shade, and needs to be shaded in the winter as well as during the summer; it also needs organic and humusy, evenly moist yet well drained soil. The yew and cherry laurel will also tolerate shade. The Andromeda however really needs some direct sun, preferably about a half day of morning sun. Unfortunately, all of these are subject to deer browse so you may want to take protective measures, especially during the winter when evergreens are an attractive food source.
