I have a 6ftx23ft space on the front of my house that only gets sun in the morning. I would like to plant some evergreens but can’t find any that do well in part sun. Any suggestions?

    Boxwood would thrive and is easy to maintain.

    Rhododendrons love morning sun and afternoon shade. Azaleas should, also, do well.

      You can plant the rhododendrons between the windows and the azaleas underneath them. Azaleas can be easily trimmed. I trim mine once in awhile with no problem. Also, you can interspace lily turf along the front of the aforementioned bushes. They will stay green all winter and have pretty lavender flowers late summer. I will look up the botanical name for the lily turf and get back to you.

    Miniature Nandina bushes. They grow well in sun or shade. They don’t need to be pruned. They are a bright almost line green in the spring and summer, and then turn a beautiful orange/red in the fall and winter.

    .....I meant to write “lime” green - not “line” green. They get about two and a half feet tall and wide.

    Any every green will do good there. Boxwood are good, roses(yes a hedge of them).

    you can put anything there as long as it gets 4/6 hours of sun

    I would plant hostas or juniper

    It’s me again, Annie. The botanical name for lily turf is liriope.

    Spruce trees grown in shade, but that said in nature they begin to grow under pines and firs until they are established enough to survive more direct light. I like the idea of the Rhododendrons and azaelas best, I have them all over my yard and the ones under the big trees thrive the best.
