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!

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?

Wilting of some leaves on a weeping redbud

Hi, I have a weeping redbud that started having dead limbs and leaves. The pattern is inconsistent. At first I thought it could be needing water and/or fertilization so I added two sticks of fertilizer and increased watering. Does not seem to have improved. The dead branches and leaves seemed to be on the inside so that was what made me think it was lack of water/fertilization. Some leaves show some spotting but not sure if that is normal during wilting. As you can see one side started showing the inside because of dead branches & leaves. It used to have a beautiful consistent canopy throughout . Please advise. I hate to see it die without me trying to help save it.
