I would really like to know what type of shrubs are best to plant in Georgia, mostly shade and a damp garden area?

Virginia sweetspire (Itea virginica) inhabits low, wet places in nature but seems equally happy in dry garden soils. Its white, fragrant flowers appear in June and July; in fall, its foliage turns a brilliant purple crimson.

Plumleaf azalea (Rhododendron prunifolium) has blazing red flowers that appear unusually late in the season for an azalea. It's a Georgia native.

Hydrangea, winter daphne and beautybush will also grow in the shade.

Best wishes with your landscape!
