Here, let me explain myself and see if I make any sense. I have no experience with any of these plants
, so I'm just going by what I've read about them (or what I think I read). My tree
only has about an 8 foot radius to it. It is on the North side of my property, so I have the "sunnier" shaded side. The edges of the garden probably get 6-8 hours of direct sun a day, the one on the right side probably gets more.
In another garden I have some pink garden phlox planted. It grows quite well, despite getting only an hour or so of direct light a day. Which is why I chose it for under the apricot tree
. The other plants
you pointed out (crazy daisy, coneflower) I had read would grow in part shade. And the coreopsis I had, I think I read is a recommended part-shade groundcover...maybe that was just the moonbean cultivar though... I'm growing
a lot of hostas indoors right now. (Like 7 plants
right now with more on the way...)
Thanks so much for the imput, patches. Please, let me know what you suggest. Your shade garden looks lovely, by the way. Maybe I am overplanting mine? You're looks so nicely spaced out.
Please, suggest away! I'm just stumbling around in the dark here.
