So...what grows in this clay?
New to South Carolina and while the weather seems conducive to unlimited garden pleasure, I was taken aback by the red clay soil. Now, driving around, I've noticed lots of magnolias, azaleas, crepe myrtles, and holly bushes. In Indianapolis, where I'm from, I saw hydrangeas, lilacs, peonies, and lots of roses. Will these grow here in the upstate? What are some of the things commonly grown here? And any advice on that soil? I was planning on liming it and then tilling in compost to help it out.
