perennials for birds
Hi!!! I just love this forum! O.K... I live on a small city lot and have pretty much maxxed out my space for large plants. This year alone I planted a river birch, a cornus florida, a cornus red dosier, a serviceberry, two different arrowood viburnum varieties, a clethra alnifolia, three virginia sweetspires, 1 mountain laurel, two rhodies... all for the birds, bees, and butterflies!! Did I mention I have quite a small lot?? All I really have room for is to fill in between my shrubs and trees with wildlife-friendly perennials. I already have a clump of coneflower, a clump of monarda, and a clump of goldenrods... and I think I'll keep the pokeweed and the dayflowers that are growing wild that I saw the cardinals feasting on today. What other perennials can I plant that will be enjoyed by the local bird population? My yard is in partial sun, and has rich, acidic soil. Thanks for any and all suggestions!
