Expert Response

I would not plant anything under the roof overhang unless you plan to water it at least during the summer season. You could plant a shrub at the drip line, where the front half would receive water, enough might seep in for the whole shrub. There are more variables than what you have mentioned. You could search a shrub database at http://www.theshrubhub.com/by-name2.php
