We are also replacing our Viburnum Carlesii with an Escallonia. The viburnum just doesn't bloom long enough nor does it have other endearing characteristics to earn its spot in our small yard. It does smell very good when it blooms. Both the strawberry tree and the escallonia are loved by hummingbirds and both are broad leaved evergreen shrubs.

Here they are, sitting on the stoop, waiting to be planted.
The tulips are still blooming and looking very good. It's been almost three weeks. It's going to warm up quite a bit next week. I'll enjoy that, but I bet it will end the tulip bloom.
