Purple coneflower, daisies, foxglove, black-eyed susans, astilbe and hollyhocks fill this garden. More than half the plants were split from perennials in other areas of my garden, says RMSer jndesign, and this turned out to be my favorite bed..
Hostas: These plants make great borders in semi shady areas and grow in zones 3-9. Hostas like rich and moist organic soils, and they like morning sun and afternoon shade. Hostas are heavy feeders and fertilizer should be applied in early spring and again in mid-summer.
