Partial shade plants

I live in tune DFW Metroplex. I have a flower bed that gets morning shade and afternoon sun during the summer. Should I plant full sun plants? I tried Coral Bells and a few other shade plants and they didn't make it, but neither did the partial shade ones. Any thought on what to plant?

How do I take sprigs from my fig tree and make them take root? Can my avocado...

How do I take sprigs from my fig tree and make them take root? Can my avocado tree stay in ground thru winter? I just planted it this spring. Same for my lemon tree, the lemon has to be brought in I am sure. One more I have three plum trees, each produced fruit the first year, but not since. What is wrong? I live in No. Dallas Texas. Thank you for your help!

Mystery grass/weed??

Hello, I have a weed or grass growing between paver stones and can't find any info on it. I'm glad it's there and want to plant more to keep the sand and gravel down. It's very flat, looks like baby St Augustine but without the long runners. It's very hearty because that area gets almost no water. Any idea what it is? My other question is, what is the best low-growing, low maintenance grass for in between paver stones? There is only sand and gravel there now and no sprinklers near by. Not much I can do about that because it's the whole side of the house! I do hand water though. Thank you so much!

Glassy-Winged Sharpshooter - Biological Control

I have several heavily infested trees and the rain is quite a nuisance. I've read extensively about the use of parasitic wasps and viruses, but can't find a resource to purchase them. Before I resort to a chemical pesticide, are there any better and safer recommendations?

Is this what root knot nematodes look like in hosta?

I sent a sample to a lab for diagnosis. It came back as root knot nematodes. This doesn't look anything like the roots of other plants with root knot nematodes. The roots are just gone in most cases.

could the lab have made a mistake?
