Abelia (Abelia spp.) Boxwood (Buxus microphylla) Ceniza Cotoneaster dammeri) Dwarf Chinese Holly (Ilex cornuta) Dwarf Yaupon (Ilex vomitoria) Eleagnus (Eleagnus spp.) Evergreen sumac (Rhus virens) Juniper (Juniperus spp.) Lavender (Lavandula spp.) Nandina (Nandina spp.) Pyracantha (Pyracantha coccinea) Red-leaf or Japanese Barberry (Berberis thunbergii) Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) Scotch Broom (Cytisus scoparius) Wax myrtle (Myrica cerifera).
