Recommendations for dry acid shade and sun

SarahlhsSarahlhs Posts: 10
Can You recommend please evergreen plants or shrubs to 1) grow over and disguise drain covers in sunny bed 2) plant in shade under ornamental cherry. Same bed Which is very visible at entrance to the house and at the moment has very old tired lavender (still beautiful) and straggly rosemary over the drains. Dry slightly acid soil.   Many thanks for any suggestions

    There are many plants for a sunny position, so all depends on what you like. I recommend Erigeron Glaucus 'Sea Breeze', this plant will sprawl about in a dry sunny position as well as Lithodora Diffusa 'Heavenly Blue'.

    Under the ornamental Cherry tree, you could try Lily Turf, Liriope Muscari, they come in white and purple flowers, and Hypericum Calycinum, a plant that can tolerate a range of conditions.
