I'm finally ripping out the sad lawn in my front yard and boulevard, and am designing a garden for this small, part-shade space. I'm not so much looking for recommendations for this particular garden (though smaller, shade-tolerant evergreen recos would be great), but I am curious about your all-time favourite evergreen shrubs, and why you love them. I'll start with mine: Daphne odora, or winter daphne. That fragrance! That tidy growth habit! What are your favourites? Why do you love them?
