Sarcococca is an excellent shrub for shade and no trouble at all. Lovely scent and looks OK all year
The Lonicera is not a shapely shrub but again a lovely scent. It might not like the dried out clay in summer and doesn't offer anything in that season
I don't grow skimmias, I have done but I don't like the way the leaves often look pale and sick.
