What can I plant in an area that only gets about one hour of sun each day?

That's a little bit tricky!

Morning sun is very different from hot afternoon sun. And, then there’s shade vs. dappled shade. Most plants really need several hours of sun to do well. With that in mind – here’s a few ideas: Pink Frost Florida Anise-Tree, Evermore Azalea, Loropetalum, Shining Sensation Weigela. Your local garden center should be able to help with ideas too.

Thanks for writing!
