Can Asiatics take more than half a day of shade?
My husband decided to trim the lower branches off a 20 year old upright blue juniper because they had been damaged by snow weight. In 15 minutes I found I had over 16 square feet of new garden space! Wow! Considering all the other beds are stuffed, this is like a gift. Dirt with no grass in it! He even double dug it for me. Before I could get too excited, though, he attached strings to this "gift": no new plants: use or move what I have. (I guess he must have noticed all the flats in the back yard.)
I still have asiatic lily bulbs I couldn't squeeze in the main garden. This spot gets only morning sun; and is shaded after 11 am. Will the asiatics tolerate this?
