I have another mystery shrub that's popped up in my flower garden this past few years. I've left it alone until I find out what it is... I may want to transplant it. It has small, evergreen leaves similar to a boxwood.

My chindo is evergreen, but the leaves are not small. Viburnum Chindo isn't a common variety
though, at least not around here. The leaves are bigger and it grows taller than most if not cut/pruned. Are your leaves tiny? They don't look it in the picture. If you think it looks more like a boxwood, maybe it is since there are varieties that flower.
I'm wondering if Scott's Heat Tolerant Blue might work for you. I tried it here in VA and it's
beautiful but it doesn't seem to like the heat and sun. I'd throw down some azimite and compost mix and give it a shot. Or carve it up into shapes, fill it up with mulch,or wood chips, hostas and monkey grass. The spaces between the shapes could also be covered in wood chips or stone as a wandering path.
