How about yews?  Evergreen and easy.  dogwoods?  Not evergreen but red winter stems so a feature for most of the year

Miscanthus will grow quickly to 6'.  Not evergreen but will provide structure over winter. Nice flowers though in late summer and autumn. Variegatus is good...strictly upright, white effect and beige flowers.  Flamingo has pinkish flowers.  Morning Light has a more delicate effect.  Gold Bar has yellow horizontal bars across the leaves.

Hellebores have huge roots and lots of them.  I have never noticed roots being eaten when I have dug them up.  How do you know if these critters are eating them in the ground Hellebore bird?  

Hellebores in pots will be more susceptible to pests as well as being less vigorous 

Miscanthus losing clumps?

Still don't think your problem grass is a miscanthus jekyl. 

Vine weevil

Prob tempting fate but vine weevil damage has been far less over past couple of years for me. 

my regime is to catch the adults at night, to annually check vulnerable plants like primulas, fuschias and heucheras and use provado killer autumn and spring. Heucneras are divided regularly and soil examined.  Potted pelargoniums esp if outside are checked too.

as with everywhere it's been esp mild this winter but even then does a hard winter really affect vine weevil larvae?
