: I would like to plant some flowers this summer but I have a very rocky yard. I don't want to spend the money to bring in soil so please tell me of some good plants that grow well in rocky soil.

Hi Shannon,

The best thing you can do for your plants is to add compost to the soil. You can purchase it in bags or in bulk.

It would be difficult to recommend plants without knowing what zone you're in and what the sun conditions are. Full sun is 6 hours or more, part sun is 4 to 6 hours, part shade is 2 to 4 hours of sun and shade is 2 hours or less of sun. Plants that are labeled as needing good drainage would be good candidates.

To find your zone try this link.
