Ideas for screening under a conifer

Hi I would be really grateful for any ideas of what to grow under a large conifer. Our house (moved in last year) sits in quite a steep slope and we over look next doors garden. There’s a large conifer and underneath there’s just some wire fencing, so I’d like to grow something to give next door privacy (and us) so we’re not always looking into their garden. On the pictures basically everything the other side of the little wall next to the tree is next door. It’s pretty dark under there! There’s some hydrangeas which seem v happy but aren’t very tall, and a small camellia which did flower this year but I’m not sure how happy it is under there. I’ve come up with rhododendron but was wondering if there were any other shrubs or solutions I could consider? The whole of that boundary could do with planting some reasonably tall shrubs - I was thinking of things like elders or other woodland shrubs...we have a lot of large trees around us! Thanks for your advice in advance!
