evergreen shrub in a windy garden
We want to know what evergreen shrub to plant in a windy part of the garden. We have a brick wall with a metre gap to the house where the wind whistles through. What evergreen plant could we plant there that would not be affected by the wind? So far, we have had a red robin there and currently a laurel and neither have done well.
We would appreciate your help.

Pacific wax myrtle
Artemisia (Southernwood, common wormwood, California sagebrush and white mugwort)
Buxus (Buxaceae) - otherwise known as boxwood
