If the area you want to cover has a mixture of sun and shade, one of the cherrylaurels (English laurel) might be the answer. Prunus laurocerasus 'Otto Luyken' tolerates full sun and full shade, forming a dense shrub three to four feet tall and twice as wide. Leaves are evergreen, four inches long. USDA Zones 6 to 8.
