Answer: Some of the most attractive shrubs that remain reasonably compact include Carpenteria californica (Bush Anemone), Brunfelsia pauciflora, Enkianthus, Jasmine and Gardenia. Any of these shrubs would be perfect under a window, especially jasmine and gardenia, which have fragrant flowers. Groundcover choices include Houttuynia cordata, Star Jasmine, Vinca (periwinkle) and Parthenocissus. Be sure to prepare the bed well prior to planting by amending the soil with lots of organic matter to help it drain quickly yet retain moisture for your shade-loving plants. Water deeply once each week, and your plants should thrive. Sorry there is no plant catalog to share with you.
