Thank you to all who replied to my request for shade plants.
Now I have a new question..
I just found out that we live in a 5b hardiness area and I am now looking
for information on perennial plants that will grow well here. We are right
at the border of a 6a hardiness area.
I brought a few plants from my previous home (5a area) and somehow some of
them just didn't survive over the winter..including a nice and tall
coreopsis which flowered from August to about October..
I have started some seeds indoors and they are doing well..I am hoping to be
transplanting them in a week or so.
I remember when I lived in Toronto (6a Hardiness area) that the garden
section of the paper determined that April 20th was the safe day to start
gardening outdoors, planting directly outdoors, etc..is this correct? And
what is the appropriate date for the 5b area?
Thank you all in advance,
