Hi Jean-Are you looking mainly for shrubs, or are you also looking for small trees and groundcovers? Do you have any height or width requirements for the area the plants will be grown. You show your located in hardiness zone 8a. If you are not sure of your hardiness zone give me your city and state as this will make a difference in the plants that will grow in your location. Is your such that it can be watered as needed or is it possibly dry or moist most of the time. Answering these questions will help to come up with a list of some plants you may like.

Answer #1 ·'s Answer · John's right...the Plant Search is very fun to use in Gardenality. I just went there and used it to find a list of plants that do well in Zone 8a, morning sun with afternoon shade, attract butterflies and hummingbirds, and are fragrant. Here's the one's that showed up that I really like and have experience and success with in mid-Georgia:

Kaleidoscope Abelia and other Abelia
Bloomerang Lilac
Ginger Lily
Itea - Virginia Sweetspire
Clethra - Summersweet
Hosta Lily

If you drop out "fragrant" here's some more:

Black & Blue Salvia
Encore Azaleas
Cardinal Flower - Lobelia
Cape Fuchsia
Purple Showers Mexican Petunia
Southgate Rhododendrons
Yellow Trumpet Honeysuckle

Hope this was helpful.
