Hi all.

I am after some advice about a couple of shrubs I need.

First these must be evergreen.

Grows up to 6 foot high and 3 foot deep

With flowers

To be used as a barrier

Soil will depend on what shrubs I get as I will be replacing the soil with the best soil I can get my hands on.

Part shade

May be asking for too much,but worth a try.

Eleagnus Ebbingei - speckled leaves and tiny concealed flowers with the most amazing scent in late autumn - can be clipped to shape, but then you lose some of the scented flowers

Hedgehog holly (don't know its name) - prickly so a good barrier - flowers and berries

What about photinia Red Robin, Evergreen and always looks different at different times of the year, Lovely white flowers in the spring and green leaves during the summer but then you have the lovely red as the leaves change in autumn and before the flowers appear in the spring, brilliant for hedging or as a single shrub, for me one of the most interesting and colourful shrubs in my garden.  I would recommend it.

There are 2 other Choisyas as well, the normal green one with white flowers and the golden leaved Sundance.
