USDA 10 Perennials and Shrubs - Knowledgebase Question

North Miami Beach, FL
Question by immek

I am not a big gardener but I have a big one. Which perennials can I use in my area in partial shade?
Can I grow Aucuba in Miami and do you have a male and a female? Can I also grow Fatsia (Japanese Aralia) and Osmunda (Flowering Fern)here and do you sell them?
Thanks for your help!!!

Aucuba is marginally adapted to your zone but is worth a try. Fatsia should do fine. Monrovia carries both of these. They also carry a couple of species of Osmunda but they are not rated to your heat zone. I'd consider them pretty iffy.

Check out the following web site. It has a box for you to enter your zip code and will then give you a list of local retailers that carry Monrovia plants:
