I am going to be doing a pretty big job next week but I need some help picking out the right plants. I was thinking of alternating daylillies with something else. It needs to be something resilient that can take direct sunlight and not get daily watering. I was thinking of some sort of small bush or shrub, maybe an emerald green thuja? I'm pretty new at this. This is the area that's getting the landscaping done. Just doin retaining bricks and red mulch.
