I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
For shady areas you might consider Japanese fatsia, Gold Dust aucuba, or a Camellia sasanqua. For a bit sunnier areas Bright N Tight cherry laurel or possibly southern wax myrtle would be good.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
