What can I plant by a retaining wall?

What kind of tree or bush can I plant by a retaining wall? Would hydrangeas or azaleas be okay?

Hey DebMcGlinn.

Azaleas would work fine for this area if it is shady. Perhaps use Encore Azaleas if it is sunnier. If it is near a sitting area, perhaps something fragrant like Gardenias. Loropetalum is a wonderful plant that is evergreen with dwarf and semi-dwarf versions that don't get too crazy.

Ornamental grasses always look great with retaining walls also.

Here is a list of some of my favorite plants for the landscape.
