What would you recommend planting next to the house, SW sun, road sand/salt splashes near by. The Hosta's grow fine, but I'm looking for a year around bush/shrub, no taller than 5 ft.

Ilex glabra 'Compacta', the compact Inkberry might be a good candidate. A dwarf Miss Kim lilac might also work, although it is deciduous, not evergreen. Dwarf Rosemary is another suggestion. Hope one of these works in your garden!
