Hi Newt! I didn't think about including that info. Can ya tell I'm new to all this? :) I live in Memphis Zone 7. The flower bed receives full sun. The hollies are planted on the two sides of the house included in the bed and the nandinas on the outside following the curvy walkway. There is a crepe myrtle in the center. I don't like all the empty space. To me it looks like something is missing; therefore, I bought 4 stepping stones I placed randomly in the empty space. I have not given thought to whether or not I want ground cover because my mother-in-law has groundcover and it smothered out her other plants. I have 12 hollies and 10 nandinas so I think I have enough shrubs. Oh, I planted hycinth around a little girl statue but of course they only bloom once in early spring. What do you suggest I plant?
