Question by : What are good shade loving flowers/bushes?
My backyard is extremely shaded and I need some flowers or bushes that grow great in the shade but are easy to take care of. I’ve heard of a Hosta flower and I looked into it but there very pricey. Any suggestions?

Question by Lish: Best plants or shrubs for shade?
I live in Michigan. I have a spot that is on a hill that has some sand mixed in the dirt. It is very shady. What can I plant there that will grow? Hosta does not work

Answer by krawfish
sand mixed in could be a prob if its mixed with your other soil.

Hostas dont work you might try other wide leaf plant or maybe a fern I am not from there so I dont know the climate. you might need to bring in some compost or humus or peat moss to help build up your soil.

I Am A Newbie At Gardening And I Need Some Help?

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Question by Karma Lies: I Am A Newbie At Gardening And I Need Some Help?
I have a client whose yard is pretty much bare except for a few little ground covers here and there. The soil is pretty hard and a little dry. It’s on a slope, which is right in front of a little swamp. This garden is in Lake Oswego Oregon and I was wondering if hosta and plantain lilies would be good to grow in her garden?

Answer by Daisy
Hosta will grow anywhere, but I thnk plantain lilies need moist soil and some sun. Good luck
