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?
Thanks for your reply!
Mollie ;)

: : I moved into a newly constructed home. I have a large half circle flowerbed. They mostly planted nandinas and holly bushes. There is TONS of empty space. I purchased several 6" thick concrete stepping stones. What would be something good to plant in the empty space that wouldn't hide these cute cherub stepping stones? Thanks for your advice! :)

: Hi Mollie,
: We would need to know your hardiness zone and sun conditions. Most hollies want full sun and nandina will grow in part shade to sun. Also, are you looking for groundcover, other shrubs, flowers?
