Zone 59802 | kathryn.kress added on March 28, 2019 | Answered

I have a thriving prennial garden with several beds in different aspects..sun, moist, etc. There exists a mix of sun and shade but I do have quite a bit of shade….all types of shade; dry shade, moist shade part shade, morning shade…you get the idea. The following plants will not grow for me: Astilbe, heuchera, tiaralla, anemone and maybe some I have forgotten. Do these plants have something in common? Am I missing something? Zone 4/5.

You may want to have your soil sampled! There may be some underlying issue that is preventing growth, such as pH, infection, or nutrient deficiencies that a soil sample will reveal so that you can correct them.
