We recently purchased a cottage that sits on a huge sand dune/bluff
over-looking Lake Michigan. There are numerous beech, oak, cedar, white
pine, white birch trees growing around the cottage. I would like to add some
smaller plantings along the bluffs edge to give the edge of the yard and
slopes some definition.. There are deer and porcupines that just love to
nibble on everything.......so I need suggestions on flowers that will
survive the animals and the winters of northern Michigan AND grow in the
sand.......no problem right?????!!!!
