New Tennessee Gardener
I have lived in Tennessee for about 5 years now but just bought a house. I want to plant new shrubs and flowers in the two flower beds next to my house but have no idea where to even start. I am in zone 6 and these flower beds would get exposed to full sunlight. I want color but balance to really shape up the front yard and accent the house.
A couple of the flowers I've planted have died instantly and the shrubs that are already there are twiggy and hardly ever green. I like shrubs that I can trim and give a more defined shape.
Any suggestions on what to plant here would be extremely helpful.
