Plants for a north facing bed

vicki carr asked 13 years ago

I am currently working on establishing the main structure of my garden. One large bed is north-facing and I would be very grateful if you could advice me on suitable plants, mainly structural evergreen plants, around 3ft in height (Max)to form my foundation. I am very keen on perennials but want to start with some structure before I plant any perennials.

A north-facing bed is usually in a degree of shade and small evergreen shrubs such as sarcococca, Viburnum davidii, skimmia, box and ruscus could be used. Some of these can be clipped to shape if desired.
