New to the Mountains
We just bought a home near Ellijay. I love the area but I am not sure what grows well here. I love gardenias,dogwoods and confederate jasmine, but I have not seen any around here. Presently our yard is what I guess would be called natural. I call it lack of ambition. The back is all wild rhododendrons all the way to the river's edge. Nothing else is planted.
I have lived in Fl for the past 15 yrs so I am sure there is going to be a huge difference in what grows best and what doesn't grow at all. We are on the side of a mountain, so we have a mostly shaded yard. I would appreciate any advice you might wish to give me. Low maintenance is a must!
