I have tried and tried to get a box hedge growing along this little curved border in front of my hammock, but someone thinks it is the perfect place to cock his leg (not mentioning any names...).

Add in the goodies and a not-so-grim place is created.
It is fairly shady and the soil is heavy, so I think the hostas will do ok. I had absolutely no resistance in buying those zingy orange zinnias.
PS. Here is the culprit!
