|I want to plant flowers, or bushes, or greenery around the house to make it more attractive, especially to buyers in the future. I would like to know which would be best for shade, full sunlight, etc., and which ones would come up each year?|
|In your area, based on your zip code, you need to select plants that are considered winter hardy to USDA zone 5. In general, if you see a plant described as suited to zones 3 to 8 then it is probably relatively easy to grow.|
Perennial flowers live for three or more years so would be the type to plant if you want them to come back every year.
There is a huge variety of plants you could use. You might begin your research using the following search feature which allows you to set the zone, light conditions and plant type: http://garden.org/plantfinder/
Enjoy your planting!
