Planting along the forest trail

Posted by Fran1000 southern Ontario (My Page) on

Hello all

I have been busy clearing trail for the past 11 years and am now ready to put in some plant groupings along the trail. The spot I am planning now has a fair amount of early spring light and then is dappled for a few hours a day in the summer. Does anyone have any favorite groupings of plants they would like to suggest? Thanks!

RE: Planting along the forest trail

Is this dry shade? I like ferns, hostas (if no deer), hakonechloa, trilliums, woodland phlox, hellebores, rhododendrons, native azaleas, cornus, dicentra, rodgersia, cercis, mosses, boulders, primula kisoana, pologonatum, epimediums, euphorbia robbiae (watch out it runs), asarum, arum, >>>>>Look at some shade garden pictures and see what you like. some of these things may not be hardy in your area. I am in Z7
