What are some beautiful flowering shrubs that would root well on a small hill?


At the very back of my backyard, there is a slight hill. I wanted to plant some flowering shrubs but wonder which would do well on a hill and in full sun. I appreciate any ideas as far as any flowering shrubs that would root well on a small hill or sloping terrain.

    Hello eugbug, Oh, thank you so much for the great plant suggestions! Yes, we have red clay here, so that is another aspect of the hill/slope I must address too.

    Hi MizBejabbers, Oh, I do love the Rose of Sharon. I need some going all across the hill, and it matters not the height, just the width. The purple and pure white sound beautiful. Thank you for answering!
