Hi everyone, I'm planning on changing the planting in my south facing border to include evergreens for winter interest. The problem is the border is backed by a high wall and is very dry in the summer months. I have one or two Euonymus which are fine and Iris Foetidia which copes too. Could you give me any more ideas please?



Artemisias, Brachyglottis, Cistus, Lavender.Olearia, Rosemary, Santolina, Halimiocistus, Phlomis, and if you want something larger, Photinia
