Answer: Here are a few suggestions: American Beautyberry (Callicarpa americana) - Can take sun to shade. High drought tolerance. Attractive purple fruits attract many birds. Fast-growing from 4 - 7 feet. This plant was already in my backyard. I wasn't sure what it was and luckily I thought twice before yanking it. Provides nice color in fall when everything else is dying or going dormant. Butterfly Milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa) - Full sun and fairly dry, well-drained soil. A favorite garden plant, as it attracts many butterflies, including the Monarch. Its flowers may be yellow or red, flowering from June to September. Sweet Osmanthus/Tea Olive (Osmanthus fragrans) - Sun to part shade. Very fragrant small white flowers in Spring. Prized for its wonderful fragrance. Slow-grower up to 15 - 30 feet. White Wild Indigo (Baptisia alba) - Full sun to light shade. Prefers acidic sandy soil but will tolerate clay. Perennial wildflower with white pea-shaped flowers in spring. Black to brown inflated pods dangle from charcoal stems in fall. Grows 3 - 5 feet.
Best wishes with your landscape!
