Here is a garden we visited in France on Sunday. Just one pic as it's late and I'm off to bed. May send more later.

Is it a shrub you are looking for? Is it in shade or sun, dry or damp, acid or alkali? Do you want flowers or would variegated leaves be OK? Euonymous fortunei is evergreen and comes in different varieties of leaves, gold and green, silver and green. Easy to grow.

Curry plant's latin name is Helichrysum italicum, forgot how to spell it. Lychnis seeds itself, you can scatter the seeds and it'll pop up next year.

The red one is lychnis coronaria and the other one is a curry plant.
