I am looking for small low maintenance shrubs to grow on a tall bank (10' by 20') which faces south east but is partially shaded by the house so that by the afternoon it is in light shade. I live in the SW of Ireland so there is a lot of rain. The soil is poor but well drained. Originally it had a lot of monbretia on the top which I am trying to eradicate (year by year !) which needed perpetual thinning out to get any flowers. At 79 I have decided enough is enough when it comes to climbing up the bank more than once a year !
