    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.

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

Purple Shamrock - Best in shade as front-of-bed edging or ringing a shade shrub such as hydrangeas or rhododendrons. Also nice in a shady flower pot. Companion plants: Under Ferns, Cimicifuga or Variegated Solomon’s Seal.
