Answer: There are many different plants you could use for full sun in your area. You might consider flowering trees such as modern disease resistant crabapples, Cornus kousa, Cercis candadensis, or Magnolia soulangeana for example. Flowering shrubs could include weigela, spirea, forsythia, lilac, and Hibiscus syriacus (rose of Sharon.) Evergreens might include juniper, arborvitae, yew, mugo pine, and if it is not too windy, boxwood and the blue hollies. Unfortunately we are not able to do designs in this limited email Q&A format. Your local county extension may be able to help you with analyzing the specific growing conditions in your yard and determining which plants might do best for you based on that plus the space available and your design goals. Enjoy your new home!
