I live in Missouri. What kind of plants/shrubs would be best for my area? My flower bed gets half sun and half shade. It is a fairly large bed as well. Thanks for your help.

There are literally hundreds of shrubs from which to choose! The good news is that the Missouri cooperative extension has put together a publication describing the best shrubs for your gardening region. Check out their website for ideas:

They also have a publication on perennials so check that one out, too! I'll bet you'll come up with an extensive list of plants.

Enjoy your new landscape.
