4–5 foot B&B Camellia sasanqua 'Kanjiro'. pink 'Kanjiro' and white 'Mini-No-Yuki' 
Sasanquas are smaller than Camellia japonicas, growing 6–10 feet. Their leaves and flowers are also smaller, and they bloom earlier (September through December rather than November through April). More relaxed look than the japonicas. They have been particularly floriferous this fall of 2009. Plant C. sasanquas and C. japonicas for months of blooming throughout the fall and winter. Evergreen. Best in partial shade. Prune after flowering

Nandina domestica 'Firepower' (Heavenly Bamboo) is a dense, compact variety with bright lime-green spring growth that turns to an excellent fall and winter red foliage. It grows 1–3 feet tall and 2 feet wide, making it a dwarf form. A soft touch for the landscape. Colors best in full sun, but tolerates shade. No pruning needed.
Knock Out® rose. Original ('Radrazz', PP 11,836). One of a growing number in the series, this original Knock-Out rose, with its cherry-red, single flowers, was the 2000 AARS winner. The 3–4 foot by 3–4 foot bushes require virtually no maintenance and bloom from April through November. (Although this year of 2009 bears witness to full blooming continuing into December. When driving, I often confuse the pink Knock-Outs with the blooming sansanquas until I get a closer view.) They are disease and pest resistant and drought tolerant. Plant in sun for best growth and flowering.
Pieris japonica: On left is 'Prelude', which is a smaller form of the evergreen shrub with spreading branches. Flowers are white on 3-6 inch panicles and last longer than others in the species. 'Snow Drift' (on the right) has a dense habit and grows 4-6 feet. New growth is bronze-red turning to deep green. Abundant white flowers in long, upright panicles.
Rose Glow Barberry (Berberis thunbergii var. atropurpurea 'Rose Glow'): 5-6 foot deciduous shrub with red leaves shaded with pink tones. Great fall color, bright red berries in winter. Spines on stems, making for a good barrier. Full sun. Tolerates dry and urban conditions.
Blue Pacific juniper (Juniperus conferta 'Blue Pacific'): Evergreen shrub that makes an excellent ground cover. Also magnificent draped over walls, softening the harshness. Grows about 1 foot high and wide, or more. Tolerates poor soils but will not tolerate wet feet (soggy or persistently wet soils). Full sun.
Burning Bush 8 feet high by 10-12 feet wide.
Rhododendron indicum 'Pink Formosa': Large, upright evergreen shrub that grows 5-10 feet. Pink flowers in spring. Needs high light area. Vigorous grower.
'Pink Ruffles' azalea: Evergreen shrub with deep pink flowers with dark blotch. Grows 6-8 feet.
Nikko Blue bigleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla): Mophead flowers that will be deep blue if the soil is acidic enough. (Will turn towards pink in sweet soil). Deciduous. Grows to 6 feet. Best in shade but okay in sun if well watered. Prune after flowering.
Edgeworthia chrysantha (Paperbush): Deciduous, suckering shrub that grows 5-6 feet tall and suckers wide. Blue-green leaves. Fragrant cream-yellow flowers in January through early April. Part shade.
Zenobia pulverulenta: A gracefully arching shrub that grows 2-3 feet (possibly to 6 ft). Attractive bluish-green leaves turn yellowish with tinge of red in late fall. Narrow, bell-shaped, nodding white flowers in spring have a anise scent. Acid, moist, well-drained soil for best growth but is good for wet areas.
Japanese Cleyera (Ternstroemia gymnanthera): 8-10 ft high and 5-6 ft wide evergreen shrub. Can maintain at 4-6 ft high. Densely branched. Upright oval to oval-rounded habit. Emerging leaves are bronze to red and change to lustrous dark green with a rich reddish bronze color in winter. White to yellowish white flowers Mary through June. Okay in sun but performs best in shade or partial shade. Moist, well-drained soils. Great for screens, hedges.
Nandina domestica (Heavenly Bamboo): 6-8 ft high evergreen shrub with white flowers in spring and red berries in winter. Leaves start coppery to purplish red becoming blue-green, then reddish in winter (particularly if in full sun). Spreads by rhizomes. Full sun or shade. Prune back canes at varying heights and selectively prune stems to make dense plant. Exceptionally durable plant. This seedling (not a cultivated variety) is larger than the compact cultivated varieties on the market.
Winter Jasmine (Jasminum nudiflorum): 3-4 ft high by 4-6 ft wide mounding shrub. Bright yellow flowers January through March. Tolerates very poor soils. Excellent to cover slopes or as stand-alone accent in the winter.
Ilex cornuta 'Rotunda' (Rotunda holly): This evergreen Chinese holly is compact, dense, and mounded with spined leaves. 3-4 ft high and 6-8 ft wide. Female. Red berries. Widely used as foundation plant or bed filler.
Mahonia bealei (Leatherleaf Mahonia): 6-foot evergreen shrub with clusters of fragrant yellow flowers in late winter/early spring that produce large, Robin's-egg blue berries atop the bush. Large, spiny leaves. Makes a wonderful accent plant in a shady area. Will grow 6-10 feet high.
Needlepoint Holly (Ilex cornuta 'Needlepoint'): A Chinese holly that has vivid red berries. Upright in youth, becoming broader with age. 10 feet high but can maintain at 5 feet. Single spine on end of leaf. Great screen or mass plant. Prefers full sun.
Leucothoe axillaris Jenkins Form (Dog-hobble): Evergreen native that grows 3 feet high and wide. Low arching, fragrant, blooms in April. Full shade.
Illicium parviflorum (Small Anise-tree): Large, suckering evergreen shrub with yellow-green to olive-green foliage and small flowers in May–June. Broken leaves smell like licorice. 8–10 feet. Sun or shade. Fabulous screening plant as will completely fill in due to the suckering habit. Softer look and lighter green than many screening plants.

Green Aucuba (Aucuba japonica 'Serratifolia'): Vigorous evergreen shrub that grows to 5 feet. Has large, bright red berries in winter. Solid green leaves. Shade required.


Berries of green aucuba.
on left: Gold Mound Spirea (Spiraea japonica 'Gold Mound'): Small, mounding deciduous shrub. Has Clusters of lavender-pink flower in late spring and early summer. Golden leaves throughout growing season that fade to yellow-green. 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 feet high and 3-4 feet wide. Sun or semi-shade.
on right: Rhaphiolepis umbellata 'Snow White' (Indian Hawthorn):  Evergreen shrub that grows to 3-4 feet, making it a dwarf form. Spreading habit. Pure white flowers in early spring into early summer. Bronze-green foliage. Good leaf spot resistance. Best in sun, but also shade tolerant. Drought tolerant.
Green Luster Holly (Ilex crenata 'Green Lustre'): A Japanese (box-leaved) holly with small, non-spiny, lustrous, dark green leaves. Grows 6-12 feet tall and twice as wide (but can keep at 3-4 feet high and 4-5 feet wide). Female. Sun or shade adaptable. Can severely prune. Foundation, screen, hedge, and mass plantings are common. Although many are tempted to round the shrubs like meatballs, it's best to selectively prune some stems and keep the height tamed if necessary, but let the plant grow in its normal habit.
Southern Wax Myrtle (Myrica cerifera): 10- to 15-foot high and 20-foot wide evergreen shrub with slender leaves that are dotted with yellowish resin glands above and beneath. When pruned, is a great screening plant and when limbed up makes a nice small tree. Tolerates poor soils. Full sun or 1/2 shade.
Elaeagnus pugens 'Simonii' (elaeagnus): 10-15 foot evergreen shrub with similar spread. Bright green leaves with silvery undersides. This variety has larger leaves than the species and is not thorny. Exceptionally fast growing. Best if planted away from trees so branches won't latch on. Sweet Gardenia-like fragrance in fall. Drought tolerant. Sun or shade.
Variegated Cast-iron plant (Although a woody, I have listed under perennials). See perennial page.
