Answer: If the beds are on the South or West side, consider them to be full sunshine. If they're on the East or North side, shade loving flowers will grow best there. Wildflowers are somewhat weedy and prefer a sunny exposure. Many are fine for cutting. Here are some suggestions for sunny beds: Amaryllis belladonna, Desert Marigold, Coreopsis, Gaillardia, Iris, Liatris (Gayfeather), Linum, Zinnia, Watsonia, Verbena, and Poppy. Shady beds could include: Monk's Hood, Astilbe, Campanula, Maiden's Wreath, Kaffir Lily, Corydalis, Bleeding Heart, Foxglove, Lysimachia and Cineraria.
