The climate of the south Atlantic states (Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama) provides an opportunity to use the broad-leaved evergreens in great profusion as well as certain sorts of conifers which are not desirable farther north. All the broad-leaved evergreens mentioned elsewhere in this book are useful in this region, as well as the coniferous plants named below. All of these plants, however, with the exception of the junipers, require at least partial shade (See Chapter XXXIII (Horticultural Varieties)). The firs, spruces, hemlocks, American arborvitae, and Douglas fir should never be used in this region at elevations below 1,200 feet above sea level.
