New Gardener...ideas for plants that will survive in Manitoba
I've recently moved from the States to Winnipeg after marrying a Manitoban and would like to plant a flower garden at the front of our house. I've done some research on plants native to the area but thought it would be helpful to seek out the pros for some advice.
I'm considering Hydrangeas and possibly Northern Lights Tufted Hair Grass. Any other suggestions for hearty shrubs or plants that would lend an element of beauty to the front of our home?
The planting area is approx. 20' long and 4' deep in a mostly shady, west-facing area.
