105 What Evergreen Plants to Use Along The East Side of a House | Arts Nursery Ltd

Q. What Evergreen Plants to Use Along The East Side of a House?

What plants could I plant along the east side of the house that stays evergreen. I want to hide the cement foundation of the house. Thanks.


There are a lots of different evergreen plants that you can use along the eastside of a house. There are a couple of factors to consider before choosing plants. The first is how much light does the area get? Along the eastside, we have to assume that it is fairly shady, or only gets morning sun. Morning sun is the weakest of the day, so we consider that to be somewhat shady. The second factor is, how tall do you want the shrub to be? Soil moisture can also be a factor. some plants prefer dry, others prefer moist. Assuming you only want the shrub to be 2-3ft in height, we would recommend the following plants for you to research. In no particular order:
  • Skimmia japonica (Japanese Skimmia)
  • Rhododendrons
  • Evergreen Azaleas
  • Dwarf Nandinas (Heavenly Bamboo)
  • Sarcococca (Sweet Box)
  • Aucuba (Japanese Laurel)
There are many others, but these would be the most popular. Hope that helps! If you want to see these, drop by Arts Nursery and one of our Horticulturists would be happy to show you what these look like!
