Fairy said it all really....my point too about camellias and acid soil. Neutral is fine.
Humblebee, I would go for camellias there.....they don't have a huge root system.
A grass like miscanthus too would add movement and create a screen from early summer through to late autumn. Good mix with camellias. Cotinus royal purple or Grace will quickly grow from spring and provide good purple cover between the evergreens
clearly you do have acid soil there...growing azaleas etc.......so a Nandina would do well there...the Sacred Bamboo is a beautiful grass/bamboo like appearance with pink/red foliage colours
