: I live in oklahoma which is in zone 6 and I have a flower bed under a silver maple tree and it is in partial shade, it gets some sun. I have trouble keeping anything alive under this tree. I know that the tree sucks up most of my moisture, so I guess i need some kind of plants for a dry shade gardening. If anyone has a suggestion what I can grow and keep alive I sure would appreciate it. Thank you for any suggestion .
One that comes to mind is epimedium. You can do a search at www.google.com and put in quotes with a plus sign like this: "plants" + "dry shade". You can also do a search on specific plants that way. If you click on 'Images' you can often get pictures as well.
