The Q&A Archives: No Shade

Question: I need a substitute plant for a bed that has Veronica in the front of it and viburnum davidii in the back. I was going to plant 9 hostas in the middle of this bed but it gets too much sun. Any suggestions. Thanks

Answer: You're right, Hostas will wilt in too much sunshine. Try the following: Russell hybrid lupines, dephiniums, peonies, columbine, Aster x frikartii. Dianthus, etc!
