Sorry folks.  Just domt like snakes.  Luckily I have a walled garden.  Adders, when they hiss at me, are disturbing.

Acid soil. Moist.  Dwarf rhododendrons for something different.  Expensive though

I would go for euonymous Emerald n Gold.  I grow them as rounded specimens and as part of a mixed hedge.  Beautiful bright creamy yellow in spring and early summer and turning yellow and green as summer progresses.  Pink tinges in winter.  Easy to shape and control.  I love them.

Berberis atro pur nana is a deciduous purple,,prickly hedge that looks spectacular in the growing season.  Pittosporum Tom Thumb is evergreen and purple and makes a good low hedge too
