foundation shrub suggestions...please...

8 years ago

I feel like giving up! When we moved into our house 12 years ago, the foundation shrubs in the front had some sort of disease and we removed them. Since then, we have had no luck with new ones. Either the drought or sun or ice has gotten to them.

I need suggestions for something 2-3 feet high that is really hardy for the house side that faces the north. The ones on the northwest end really get relentless sun in the summer.

Am I expecting too much for something to survive heat, drought, and cold/ice?

Many thanks for any suggestions. I'm disheartened .
