Oh, Darn, I saw 3 or 4 replies to my post and deleted them in error! Would be so grateful if you people could repost your replies to me? Learning curve on this site for me!!! Thanks. I live on Vcr Island and have an area about 10-12 feet wide) between the house and detached garage (facing West) that needs planting. It's a very sheltered area that gets 1/2 day sun. I would prefer low (because I have window boxes on the side of the garage and house), evergreen planting with maybe shrubs in background and perennials in foreground. Any suggestions would be so welcome!
