Day Lilies Report Abuse
While not technically a shrub, their long narrow leaves clump like a shrub, with a flower on top! They work well on slopes and accent the otherwise green shrubs.

Japanese barberry Report Abuse
This shrub grows to a height of 3' so is good for the top of a slope with shorter plants cascading down the hill.
