I just got a bunch of ginseng and goldenseal seeds to plant! This will be the second year in a row; I split them between 4 different sites to find out where theyíd be happiest... and now I know!

This is a good list. A lot of these plants grow wild around here, can often be purchased through your local Native Plant Society. Wild ginger (Asarum canadensis) is one of my favorites. Itís a creeping groundcover with big heart-shaped leaves. And primroses are frigginí adorable. Maybe someday Iíll try growing cardamom.

Thereís a bench near the edge of my driveway thatís just outside the canopy of a big oak tree, so it gets a couple hours of direct sun in midsummer but more in early spring before the trees leaf out. Iíve planted a camellia, a hazelnut and some shrubby St. Johnís wort nearby. (And a flame azalea, which is tiny and has never bloomed so far). The rest of the space is filled in with hostas, hellebores, liriope, daylily, penstemon, asters, lily of the valley and dwarf crested iris. And crocuses and daffodils, of course. Toad lily and anemones have not thrived here; if they donít do better this year Iíll try moving them to a spot with better drainage.
(A verbal oddity: toad lily, daylily and lily of the valley are all not actual lilies.)
