Hi everyone. I'm looking for some advice on what to plant. I (well mostly my kids) have decided to make a flower bed beside the porch. My porch/patio is only a few inches from being level with the ground so my first question: should I plant short plants or tall ones? Also the area is almost all shade. It gets maybe 2 or 3 hours of filtered sun a day. I'd also like to stick with parenials because I will be using landscape fabric and mulch and would rather not have to redo it each year. I'm in zone 6. Any advice or ideas would be much appreciated.
