I am already thinking about spring. This year I am going to put up two
window boxes in the front of my home. The problem is that it gets only a
tiny bit of sun in the morning. It's north facing with trees overheard.
So can you guys recommend what I can plant in them. Impatiens and wax
begonias I already know but I was hoping to get a bit more inventive. Any
rec's for something viney or cascading?
Thanks. Bonnie in NJ (zone 6b)
Ivy, vinca or lysimachia for viney, trailing type plants. Annual lobelia
does very well in low light conditions as well and you might want to include
coleus for some dramatic foliage color. And don't forget fuchsias.
You don't have to restrict your selections to annuals. There is a wide
selection of shade loving perennials you could include, too. Some of the
smaller hostas, ferns, primulas, heucheras, astilbe, saxifrage, even some
grasses could liven things up a bit and be a departure from the typical
pam - gardengal
