Ideas for landscaping along a backyard fence?
A couple of notes: This is a very shady area, so I need plants that do well in shade. I do not like arborvitae, junipers, or similar evergreens. And I want perennials only.
I bought three sky pencil hollies and put them in front of the fence, and they were sort of what I wanted, but I decided to plant them in the corner that's on the right side of the pictures where they work perfectly. So I don't want to plant any more. I'm now thinking of having tall camellia bushes, which of course have the added benefit of flowers. But one thing I want is to be able to keep those tall bushes cut about 2 feet wide so they don't take up the whole space -- could I do that with camellias?
In case you're curious about what's on the right, I have two encore azaleas behind those hellebores. I will be planting the hellebores right where they are, and hostas in front of them.
