Answer: How about including a shrub or two? Gardenia jasminoides 'August Beauty' (Gardenia augusta), Banana Magnolia (Magnolia fuscata), Bengal Tiger Canna - Canna x 'Pretoria', Bridal Wreath Spirea - Spiraea cantoniensis (Reeves Spiraea. Double Bridal Wreath Spiraea), or a miniature Chickasaw crape myrtle - Lagerstroemia x 'Chickasaw' (Miniature Crepemyrtle). Or an evergreen vine: Carolina Jasmine - Gelsemium sempervirens (Yellow Jasmine/Jessamine) to complete your garden?
