The Q&A Archives: Flowers

Question: I have a pretty shady yard, it is somewhat sunny in the front but my backyard is all woods...what kind of flowers are good to plant?

Answer: Some annuals for shady areas include impatiens, coleus, caladiums, and perilla. Some perennials for shady wooded areas might include hostas, ferns, lamium, heuchera, tricyrtis, and astilbe along with native plants such as Solomon's seal and Virginia bluebells. Your local professionally trained nurseryman may also have some suggestions. Enjoy your garden this summer!
