      Variegated Pittosporum- Evergreen great for backdrop color to offset some hydrangeas! Trying them as border plants against a fence.

      Pittosporum - deer will eat this if it's located in an accessible area. They tend to ignore it when it's used as a foundation shrub in the front of a home with walkways and driveways surrounding it.

    Another potentilla--'Abbotswood': these look like easy, winter-hardy shrubs that would do well around that corner (in front, they're low-lying) or by the foundation on the left. "showy flowers, repeat flowering, long flowering season" for this one.

    I love this shady path

    The azalea bush is a shallow rooted plant, and it is one of those rare shrubs that can flourish when planted beneath the shade of pine trees. The aggressive root and extensive coverage of the underground surface of pine tree roots is dense and presents a difficult growing medium for most other companion plants to co-exist.
