The part shade was already part of the equation there; I added homemade compost in abundant amounts, and voila! I have my own little woodland garden.
Asarum (Wild ginger) grows well in my woodland garden. It spreads by rhizomes, and I read that it can be a good "ground cover," which to me means don't let it get out of hand or it could take over the garden!
It took awhile, but I finally was able to establish the magnificent Mertensia Virginica (Virginia bluebells) in my garden. Last year was the first year they bloomed. They have spread quite a bit since last year.
Such delicate color!
I appreciate my woodland garden area. It's pretty, and it's "me."
