We have a raised bed approximately 10' x 4' in fron of our house. We live in Ga. & this area gets a lot of sun. I'd like to plant a few shrubs there. What can you reccommend & is there any section in this site that deals specificly with bushes.

There are a number of excellent heat and drought-tolerant shrubs, such as dwarf yaupon holly, Indian hawthorn, dwarf crepe myrtle, glossy abelia, Barberry 'Rosy Glow', dwarf burning bush, dwarf butterfly bush, Carissa Holly and ?Miss Huff? lantana. And don?t forget the ornamental grasses, including maiden grass, fountain grass and Japanese silver grass. Ornamental grasses are tough as nails and are unaffected by drought conditions. Enjoy your garden!
