What plants should I buy ?
I live in Silver Spring, MD. My house faces East and I get sun from 6am till about 2 or 3pm daily. I like to put in some plants that can take sun. Flowers to draw bees and butterflies and a few brushes ( that deer do not like, if possible). Soil is so-so. Roses seem to last and grow but I have had other flowers that did not, maybe because I did not water enough.
Here is a good link from our website to attract pollinators http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/earth-friendly/how-attract-and-conserve-pollinatorsnatural-enemies-you...
Also, based on your site conditions see suggestions for groundcovers http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/groundcover-list and native plants http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/earth-friendly/20-recommended-native-plants-maryland
