The Q&A Archives: Shrub ideas

Question: We need to replace the shrubs on the east side of our house. We have large planters made of brick that now hold 3 bushes on each side of the front door. Can you recommend some that don't lose their leaves in the fall?

Answer: Abelia x 'Edward Goucher', Coralberry (Ardisia crenata), Japanese barberry (Berberis thunbergii var. atropurpurea), Spreading Plum Yew (Cephlotaxus harringtonia), dwarf boxwood (Buxus), and winter Daphne (Daphne odora) are all good choices for flowering evergreen shrubs for your gardening region. Enjoy your new plants!
