Recommended Plants

I am looking for a shurb or plant to use as a border for the front of my house with limited sun to full shade. What do you recommend? I live in PA.

Thanks for writing. One of my favorite shrubs for shade is fothergilla (fragrant flowers + gorgeous fall foliage), but grape holly and rhododenrons are great, too!
