The Q&A Archives: Need Help

Question: This is my first year in the garden! I planted silver king euonymus, golden euonymus & golden globe along my fence, what is the suitable plant to balance off this setting. I need easy care plant. Also where can I find Cardinal Flower(Lobelia Flower) HELP ME PLEASE?

Answer: Cardinal flower or Lobelia cardinalis should be found in the perenial section -- you may need to find a nursery that specializes in perennials and native plants, or it may not be in stock until summer when it blooms.

Along with those golden shrubs you might want a solid green evergreen such as yew or juniper or mugho pine. This will add some texture and a color contrast.
