Can you tell me what boxwood would be the best for lining the fence and stopping erosion? The area only gets very little morning sun and is mostly shade.

Boxwoods and liriope are a nice combination for shady spots.

However, check out distylium and loropetalum. Both have pretty foliage and flowers. If you can go with a medium height plant – 6-7’, Tiger Eyes Sumac is great for erosion control.

Thanks for writing!
