Q.What can I plant in a full shade flower bed that is underneath a tree?
Hello! I have a flower bed that is underneath a tree located at the front of my house. I am having trouble figuring out what to plant there. It is partial to full shade and gets some sun in the morning. Any ideas on what I can plant that would be okay? I would like to have a perennial so it comes back every year. Thanks!
