The Q&A Archives: Shaded area

Question: I am looking for a nice hardy green shrub for a shaded flower bed. Do you have any recommendations for someone living in zone 7 (metro atlanta, ga)?

Answer: Meredith,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Shade and good foliage cover on evergreen shrubs are a difficult combination. There are a few choices including camellias, pieris, and azaleas. Aucuba or Gold Dust Plant is another option.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
