Need a shrub in St. Louis
I have two spots in my St. Louis yard that need a shrub and I can't find one to work! Hopefully, y'all can help. Here are the details:
FIRST SPOT -
Tree shaded all day except from 10:30 - 1:30pm.
Wet, clay soil. (It collects runoff...)
Needs to be around 4 - 5 feet tall.
SECOND SPOT -
Tree and house shaded all day except from 12:00 - 2:00pm.
Average to dry moisture.
Needs to be around 3 - 4 feet tall.
I've tried many plants and shrubs and they don't seem to take. I end up trasplanting them somewhere else and am left scratching my head with what to do.
Thanks in advance!
