Large Formal Plants
Here is a question the new garden where I work has a large stone block archway leading to and from the main house I have heard it was Henry VIII official hunting palace in this area.
it has 2 variegated Euyonomous shrubs which have been subjected to attack from an airbourne virus 1 has died and been taken out the other is also dying so also has to go. They are around 5 feet wide by 7 feet tall, I need ideas on what to replace them with. They must be hardy ever green and look very formal /Grand any ideas greatly welcome in the garden all the plants are ever green things such as euyonomous / Elagenous / Viburnum / Osmanthus / Choiysus get the picture thanks Lester
I would go for yew - there's nothing more formal and impressive.
My second choice would be one of the dark-leaved hollies - there are some with leaves that are a very dark blue/green.

Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
I also think yew would be a good choice.
