What would you plant next to this porch?
I live in OK., z7. Hot and sunny.
Here's the picture of the porch and my comments and questions are below:
This was taken in May before the Carpet Roses were in bloom. They stay.
See the areas near my front porch? I want to plant the same thing on both sides of it BUT...the sunlight is completely different at each area.
Right side of sidewalk:See the Caladiums near the sidewalk? They're very big and lush now. On the other side of the C's I have Impatiens growing and they're not doing squat, but they thrived there last year. Second year of gardening this bed.
That area near the porch only gets a few hours of sun in the morning, perfect for shade plants. All the plants in front of them get sun for about 9-10 hours a day.
Left side of sidewalk near porch. It gets morning sun for about 5 hours, then shade for about 3 hours, then sun for a few hours before sunset. So it's basically a sun garden in that spot.
I have a Hibiscus there that isn't doing squat either and I usually can grow them like crazy! We have flat rock on the other side of the Hibiscus to set my succulents on but I only set one out.
What would be a good plant that will grow tall and flowery all summer, that would take lots of shade and lots of sun?
Is there such a thing? lol
