soemthing that takes less sun than an azalea
I am about to give up on a few azaleas that I believe are in too deep shade. Thought they were getting enough sun when trees not leafed out yet but there is shade from some other nearby shrubs. They only throw a couple of blooms, but otherwise look healthy. lot of leaf mold mulch, not gobs of water but watered well when first planted,and they are growing.
I would still like to try some blooming shrub but appear be pushing the limit on shade. Has anyone found good results with Pieris, or hydrangeas or similar in an area that was just a tad too shady for azaleas?
If all fails I will go with more hostas & shady perennials. I already have aucuba!
I could try on shrub forum, but I thought azalea-lovers might have ideas on overlapping requirements.
