Answer: To help your plants thrive, you'll want to mix some organic matter into the soil to help it hold moisture and nutrients. Otherwise you'll be watering almost constantly! Depending upon whether your garden is in sun or shade, you might try growing summer sweet shrub, goat's beard, tirella, columbine, bleeding heart, spirea, astillbe, and of course hostas (in the shade), or Berberis (Barberry), Buddleia - Butterfly Bush, Quince, Cotinus coggygria - Smoke Bush, Cytisus - Scotch Broom, Privet or Mock Orange in the sun.
Best wishes with your landscape!
