What are good foundation plants?
I have an area in front of my townhome that I would like to put a garden. What are some good foundation plants? Also, part of the area is shaded and the other part has full sun. What kind of foundation plants can I plant in shaded areas, specifically trees or shrubs? There are also two long windows in front of area to be planted.

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. Just about any plant makes for a good foundation planting --- it really depends on the growing conditions and the look you want to create.

 

I'd suggest taking a look at our online Plant Encyclopedia and doing a search...that should help you find great plants for your conditions that you like. Check it out here: http://www.bhg.com/gardening/plant-dictionary/
