help with shrub/hedge selection
I'm a total newbie, so I apologize in advance! I am in the process of cleaning my flowerbed in the front of my house. I am trying to decide on what shrubs I can plant in this area (picture included) to give a hedge-like appearance, especially because of the stained brick. I did some looking online and was thinking about photinia plants...but I noticed some people absolutely hating those. I was drawn to those shrubs b/c of the color factor.
Also to note, the area in the photo isn't nearly as narrow as it looks. The picture was using the panorama view.
Any other ideas? My house faces SW, gets a good deal of sunlight. Also in zone 7.
