Hi there - I have a large conifer hedge in my garden and a flower bed in front of it, that is currently bare. The flowerbed gets full sun sometimes and shade at other times (depending on time of day/year). I need an evergreen shrub, preferably a flowering one (time of year for flowering not important), that will look nice at a height of about 1 metre - this is to hide the bits of the conifer hedge that have gone brown! I live on the coast, so it gets a bit windy sometimes, but it is not an exposed location as such. As you can probably tell, I am a complete beginner at gardening! Any advice would be very welcome. Thanks .
