Need specific plant suggestions

temesMay 31, 2010

I have installed a small flagstone area in front of my terrace. Now I'm looking to plant a few bushes or some other kind of plant with big gorgeous leaves or whatever plant that would look nice flowing over the stones, as I really like the lush effect it creates. The plant should also grow big enough to provide some privacy but be only moderately sized(as I don't want to block vision over rest of the garden).

I have very little knowledge on plants so any suggestions are appreciated!

Forgot to add that the plants will be exposed to a lot of sun and four seasons.

What size bed are planning? What zone are you in? Can you post pictures of the area?

It all depends on what you have for climate and soil and solar exposure.

What else will these plants be doing for you in regards to traffic control, safety, or controlling a view?

Where do you live?

Hostas, hollies, and yews will not survive where I live.

Those plants will survive and flourish here in the NE USA, but it depends on your climate zone, as to which plants will work best.
