Depends on when that sun is. From the plant pallete you'd originally chosen and that mention of "sun perennials" I'd assumed a full sun/ partial shade spot. That may still be the case if that sun is mid-day; if it's on either end we change that juniper should become an upright holly ('Centennial Girl' stays to the right height) and 'Jean's Dilly' becomes a Korean boxwood (nice and dwarf AND hardy)...

sun

The sun appears mid to late afternoon. I will look at those plant suggestions.

What about the blueberry bush, stellas, and weigelia? The hostas should be fine, right?

What about using Bergenia - Pig Squeak or Lungwort - Raspberry Splash or will they not take any sun at all?

The other plants are fine, as are bergenia and pulmonaria...

Wichita Blue junipers

Can I prune the above 4' triangular shrubs to a more columnar shape satisfactorily?

The H G on the Road

:o Of course. The Blue Point needs to be the Emerald Sentinel now and we might want to look at azaleas (I'm thinking 'Girard's Fuschia') for the weigelia; the rest should still work...

Light and soil should always be first considerations before planting; thought you'd already done that homework. My bad :oops:
