Thanks to both of you! I don't understand why they're doing so well this year? After the crazy spring weather that we had, I thought for sure I'd have a lot of smaller plants. This is probably the best year I've had (so far)!

Awwww Magazine quality gardens want to come help me? :greengrin:

I just came in to cool off and do some searching. I have a lot of shade in the front I need something to spice up this front

My most difficult spot is the girl with the ugly legs..... my Mock Orange bushes. If they did not have such beautiful fragrant flowers every June I would take them out.

I cannot use my favorite plants Hostas because it is to close to the road that is to tempting for the deer.

if your front yard has a big deer problem that needs to be fixed first
everything i would suggest is eaten by deer
Roses, Hardy upright Fuchsias, Hydrangea, Japanese Maple, etc.
and as you stated the best one is Hostas

good luck

@Strever I know. When I purchased this property I was so excited. I thought no more suburban limited garden area. I have acres!!!! Moved all my Hostas to their new home some so big the wheel barrel fell over. Planted them got up the next morning and nothing was left but stems. Next came the daylilies that was desert after they ate the vegetable Hostas.

I know I'm pushing my luck with the deer. We've watched young ones walk through the big bed in the front yard. So far, they haven't seemed real interested. I've seen some of the steps taken by gardeners to keep the deer out. Looks like a lot of work to me!
