My daughter's home faces northwest in our zone 14-Sunset's zones- Santa Rosa. She wants an evergreen hedge that can exist under the shading eaves of her garage's roof. Can boxwood make it under those circumatances? Which kind?

Boxwood is reasonably adaptable. As long as it is not deep, deep shade, I think it will work in the area. Or, you might consider the large perennial plants of Acanthus mollis (bear's breech) or Astilbe. Azaleas might also work in the area. Best wishes with your garden.
