Trying to decide what plants to plant in a fully shaded garden in zone 6. Looking for something that will have leaves in the winter to complement Hostas in the summer...ideas??
Thunbergia grandiflora, specifically. On the north facing side of my house is the porch which has a 4ft tall brick wall alongside it right under the overhang. It gets NO sun. I have a shade garden going there, and would like to plant a thunbergia there to vine up and around the wall. My Mom has one doing great on the east side of her house under the overhang, but I think it gets a little morning sun. I was wondering if anyone had any idea if it might do okay in full shade. Will it flower? Thanks!
I have never planted flowers before. Should I get some that are already grown a little then plant seeds?
Help, i have a gap at the bottom of my garden which i filled with fur trees, most grew tall but one wont grow at all, it isnt even dead either,how do i cover this gap up, needs to be somthing tall, cant think! Cats keep getting thru aswell so please help.
There's a corner spot in my yard that only gets maybe 3 or 4 hours of sun a day. I need ideas what to plant there. I have 2 bleeding hearts, some Yarrow and a few other things there now. I'd like flowers, not ferns or other greenery. Thanks! Ooops! Perennials, please!
In my front garden i have alot of open space that gets some sun in one area in the morning and another area during the midday, and plants that need alot of sunlight don't do well, any suggestions or ideas as to different flowering plants i can put in that will be ok without a lot of sun?
I have a flowerbed that wraps around the majority of my house. We plan to plant it full of flowers in a few weeks. We are curious to know what type of nice purple and/or yellow flowers would thrive in Kentucky this time of year.
I have an ever evolving hummingbird/butterfly garden, and I am looking for new flowers to plant. I have had the most success with bee balm so far. <3 Thanks for your advice. I live in the NE USA.
I have a bed that gets sun for most of the day even in winter, and has good soil. But when it gets cold, everything in the bed dies off and it looks ugly and depressing. Can you recommend some brightly colored flowers that will bloom through the cold months? They can be either annuals or perennials.
