Potted Tree/shrub for a shaded area

Jennifer Mckittrick asked 10 years ago
We have an external courtyard at the centre of our house which gets no direct sunlight to ground level. What trees or plants would be suitable for decorative purposes in this shaded but very sheltered area?

As it is a central courtyard, it is probably now very big, so a relatively small plant is needed.

You could try fatsia, Viburnum tinus or aucuba, all evergreen and all tolerant of quite a bit of shade.
