Need shrub suggestion for north side foundation

9 years ago

I have on order 25 encore azaleas that are supposed to be planted in a new planting bed to be created on the north facing side of my house. My yard guy said he thought they would be okay there, but I'm a bit concerned that they won't get enough light to do well. We live in Augusta, GA, which I believe is zone 8a.

Any opinions, or suggestions for something that would fare better would be most welcome. Looking for something that will eventually become full and bushy to fill in the space. This is an expensive project for us, so we want to get it right.
