Putting together shade plants
Thanks for writing. Your plan does sound like a good one.
Will any of the plants overcome the others? It depends on what varieties you have and what the conditions are. Some types of ferns, ostrich ferns for example, can be quite aggressive. Some types of hosta will spread quickly as well. But in general, the plants should do well together.
