Something small needed to provide shade for Hosta
I have a flower garden that was mainly in the shade until the tree that provided shade broke & had to be cut down. There was also some kind of bush/tree that was taken out of the flower garden so therefore the hosta in there are not doing well. What could I could plant in my flower garden that would provide shade for the hosta, but not grow to big or take up a bunch of room. There is also ornamental grass & day lilies in there. I need to kind of "rehaul" this area!

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. It's really tough to say without being able to see your space in person and know what's big enough to provide shade, but that's not going to take up too much room for you.

 

That said, one possibility may be to put up a garden structure such as a pergola, arbor, or even posts framed with lattice.
