Shade garden planning
Hi All .. I am in zone 6, new to gardening and have moved into a brand spanking new house . I have read the forums about different types of flowering/ornamental plants but unsure about what I want to do. I need help mostly planning mostly my perennials and may be a few annuals.
We have planted a row of winter gem boxwood interspersed with some lilies and bulbs of calla lilies. I also have a small water pond behind that row (no water plants there yet).
I was thinking of having columnar bushes (may be pencil yew) close to the window that will be taller than boxwood and then have a japanese maple,hydrangea or rhododendron tree to the left. A relative has told us that she will us a few hostas and may be a small Japanese maple plant. may be the hostas can go in front of the columnar bushes
Please help !
