We're trying to redo our garden bed in front of our house...there is a large palm tree in the center and we've tried different kinds of flowers but everything dies. The area receives partial sun. What perrenials can you recommend. We live in Central Florida.

Vicki,

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!

I would suggest shrimp plant, plumbago, and garden phlox (Phlox panniculata) for starters. Try mixing some compost into the bed prior to planting.

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