“I wrote a question recently about planting a butterfly garden in a acidity soil. I should have also mentioned?

That there are two utility boxes that are about 3 feet tall that I want to cover up with bushes. I like the rhododendron idea I am wondering if hydrangea are also good? It is a sunny/shady area
thanks

    I always advise clients to not try to cover up a box or hydrant. You call attention to it when you plant around it and it’s the first thing your eyes see. I told my mother that and she promptly planted yellow marigolds around her red fire hydrant. You could see it for miles.

    I think you can cover it up, but you want to make the boxes accessible. It would be better to use evergreens. Besides rhododendron, theres also pittosporum, gardenia, osmanthus,

    hydrangea is very good Agastache is excellent for attracting bees and butterflies , Buddleia is also very good
