I'm trying to find a couple of dwarf evergreen shrubs - Choysia and Ceanothus to plant in my border with a Silver Queen Hebe preferably scented. Can you suggest any plants to fit in this area please ?
Many thanks
Kay Baker

I like the euonymou fortunei family, emerald gaiety, green and gold are two of the varieties there are others, they grow slowly and can be pruned hard when they out grow their space.

Are you in a place that doesn't get severely cold winter weather - there's a hardy Gardenia (Kleim's hardy) and a delightful plant called Pittosporum tobira (there seems to be a variety called 'nanum' and a variegated one!). I've never seen a dwarf Choisiya, and Ceanothus has only a light scent.
Do you want the scent in summer?
Maybe Sarcococca humilis (sweet box) might do if you want scent earlier in the year.
