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.
I planted lilacs several years ago on one of my side hills and they are beautifully magnificent now. I have to keep cutting them back because of how well they are thriving.
Forsythia bushes do really well just about anywhere. They are a very hardy shrub and even have some value because florists like them.

Is this photo of your garden now? Because I think you have pretty much perfected flowering shrubs on a hill. And lawn care, and privacy fencing. You rock.
You can't go far wrong by choosing fuchsia. There are lots of varieties and fuchsia is easy to grow and propagate, tolerant of high or low temperatures, lime or acid soils, either sandy or clayey.
Hypericum Hidcote is also an easy to grow shrub tolerant of possibly dry ground on a slope. It has yellow flowers and soft green foliage. Growing to 6 feet max, it makes a nice hedge when planted in rows.
Holy guacamole! What a great bunch of answers. Show us the pictures in a year or so.
Plumbago auriculata (blue plumbago) is spectacular in full-sun.
Wow, Connor j, thank you, and, yes it is!!!
If you don't mind thorns, Bougainvillea is another excellent choice. They flower in every month in Florida...
Oh, yes, I love Bougainvillea and I have some already. So beautiful! I have not planted them in the yard but just in containers. I should rethink that! Thank you again.
I live on a really steep hill and weeds and saplings of all kinds are a real problem that I haven't solved. I did plant a pink Rose of Sharon (althea) bush that my aunt gave me, and it is doing fine. I acquired two more cuttings, a purple and a pure white that I'm going to plant as soon as spring comes. Of course Rose of Sharon grows tall, so I'm not sure what height bushes you would like.
I live on the borderline of zones 7 and 8, mainly 8, and these bushes are in the shade. I think they grow well in the sun, too.
how about "forget-me-not" a flower in my country Philippines. am not sure if you have this in your country but maybe they got several variety and termed differently.
Try Rose of Sharon hedges. If you need seed let me know and send your address to my email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also make sure to always cut most of the blooms off after they bloom on this hedge so it won't seed and make more hedges or your entire yard will be full of hedges. I guess it is the same with other plants too.
If you would like beautiful late summer bloom on lovely shaped branches
, how about a multi-trunked crape myrtle? There are many varieties including smaller shrub types.
