The Q&A Archives: What to plant in my area

Question: I have a half round bed I want to border with impatiens. What can I plant behind that will be low growing in mostly shade that I will not have to do much trimming and will not suffer from fungus?

Answer: Julie,

I'm not sure how low you want the plants to be but some possible choices include Aztec grass (looks like white and green striped Liriope), various types of fern including Holly Fern, or perhaps cast iron plants.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
