Planting ideas needed please.

Somerset, United Kingdom Gb

I have a small west facing border in which I am planting yellow, red and orange plants. I need an evergreen which grows to no more than 30 inches and bears yellow /orange flowers. Any ideas?



You could google Berberis...
They have orange and yellow flowers, and some are quite small, or could be trimmed to keep a compact shape....
I hope this helps :o)
I'm adding this question to design ideas :o)

I agree with Terratoonie, There is a lovely Berberis called Darwinnii which has arched stems and lots of flowersof reds/oranges/peach.Grows about 1.5m.
Others to consider, depending on soil condition, the look you are after, when you want it to flower etc, are Japanese Skimma(red berries) 75cm, Azalea's 30/60cm, Hebe Red Edge 60cm, Rhododendron's(careful with sizes), or for a different look Red Barked Dogwood....I've no doubt there are plenty more. Don't forget most evergreens tend to like either fertile or humerous type soil conditions, well drained.
