I have flower beds in my front and back yards that are fully shaded. I also do not have alot of time to care for them I do have a sprinkler system though to water them daily if needed. What would you suggest would be a good plant or flower to plant?

There are some good flowers for shade as well as foliage plants that bring color. I would consider impatiens, caladiums, wishbone flower (Torenia), Persian Shield (Strobilanthes), and Hinkley's Columbine (for early spring blooms).

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
