Choisya for me too
However, check out lonicera Baggesons Gold. A lovely, fairly quick growing evergreen with uniquely olive leaves turning butter yellow in summer. I grow them here as shaped plants......cones esp. I keep them to a height of about 5 to 6'
grow eucalyptus gunnii alongside Baggesons Gold for a beautiful all year round contrast. Coppice the eucalyptus as you do a dogwood in early spring for the best blue juvenile foliage.
Consider your evergreens by shape too.....
totally agree with Tetley about not going for large shrubs. Smaller will establish more quickly and soon catch up with larger ones. Besides you can save an awful lot of pennies.
oh! Warm welcome Liam
