perennials or shrubs

Asked April 20, 2017, 12:54 PM EDT

Which perennials or shrubs would do well on the east side of the house, next to the house? Had no luck with the lilies planted two years ago. Thanks.

Look for plants that do well in part shade and are rated for zone 4. Some plants that will do well; Hosta's, ferns, columbines, sweet woodruff and so on. Amend the soil with peat moss and bone meal, keep your new plants watered, don't let them dry out. There are several local plant nurseries in Cheyenne, like; Grant Farms, Riverbend and Gardening with Altitude.

Hope this helps, Catherine
