Any good plant DB where I can select plants?

For example, I need evergreen shrub for shade and compact clay for zone 7b. Better fast growing and not too big for front porch.

Thanks!

I would use the data base on this website! Try typing in evergreen shrubs and see what comes up, then scroll through checking the requirements for each one. Or google by typing in evergreen shrubs, or arborvitae, etc. As for clay, there aren't many plants that like that, it's best to amend the soil with compost or similar soil conditioner before planting. I'm in the same zone, and we have clay soil here, too. Another good source is actually a nursery website in Georgia, WilsonBrosNursery. All kinds of plants for the South, and very detailed growing requirements for each one. Plus, it's the best eye candy on the web!
