Need some help filling in the gaps in the back yard.  Those big 'uns are red tips (photinas) but they leave a lot of room three feet from the ground.  We have planted a random bush, magnolia and everything else smaller than a redwood, but still visible.  Lots of roots under the photinas and we have a septic tank field back there.  Southwest exposure.

jazzikatz writes: I am guessing you are in California - so, if the spot is shady I would suggest cast iron plant (Aspidistra). If sunny, and your climate zone is warm enough, try lantana; if climate is cooler, then maybe a low form of loropetalum. Any of these are tough and easy-care, and the leaves should contrast nicely with your redtips. Posted: 8:30 am on July 25th
