Seeking shade friendly natives - GA.
After 2 years in my home, I'm ready to tackle the yard. The lot is fairly well wooded with red oak, hickory, poplar, and a couple of pine trees. I'd like to identify plants that will grow will in partial shade to full shade and also provide food and shelter for birds.
I have a single red tipped photinia that a yellow bellied sapsucker comes back to each winter - is it native? If not, are there natives that he will like for the sap?
I'd appreciate any advice or websites you feel would be helpful. Many thanks for your help.
