What shrubs look good with ferns?

Stephanandra, willow, and cotonester are all excellent choices. When planting shrubs, consider the planting season (spring, autumn, or summer), as well as agronomic criteria, plant compatibility, and the quantity of light and shadow in the yard. Agreeable companionship is important in creating a balanced landscape, so select plants that fit together well.

Farnsworthia filicaulis 'Blue Star' makes an attractive addition to any garden. It has beautiful star-shaped pink flowers followed by red berries which attract birds. The foliage also turns red in fall, making it a great choice for adding color to your yard during winter months.

When selecting plants for your yard, try to choose ones that are similar in size so they don't overwhelm each other. Also, avoid planting large plants next to smaller ones; instead, place them away from each other so they have room to grow.

Finally, think about what kind of balance you want in your yard, then use these questions to help find plants that will work well together.

• Are there trees or large shrubs in the area? If so, how much sunlight will their branches block out?

• What other plants are in the area?

What are some good bushes to plant in front of the house?

Boxwood, wintercreeper, rhododendrons, and holly are all wonderful choices for foundation plants. These short, evergreen bushy shrubs retain their leaves throughout the year. The plants thrive in direct sunlight or mild shade. They are drought-tolerant and do not grow to be very tall. Wintercreeper is also known as Japanese snowbell because its clusters of white flowers look like frozen bells during the winter months.

These are only a few of our many species of plants. There are hundreds more that would work well as foundation plants. The most important thing is to find something that fits with the other plants in your yard and the style you want to achieve.

What are the best shrubs for wildlife?

Fruiting bushes such as hawthorn, holly, firethorn, and cotoneaster give a welcome meal and shelter during this time of year, especially for migrating birds. Grow shrubs that blossom at different times of the year to provide year-round nutrition for insects (early spring is key for many insects). Avoid planting overgrown trees or large plants because they can be difficult to manage and also pose a risk of being bitten by snakes when they bloom.

There are several species of honeysuckle that are good for attracting bees and other pollinators. They tend to grow in clusters along a fence or wall and produce yellow flowers that fall before ripening into red berries which attract birds who eat the seeds after stripping the bark off the tree. Some varieties have been selected for their fruit which falls to the ground instead of rising up on spires. This is helpful for preventing deer from eating all of the fruits off of one plant!

Birds love grapes! Spread out across the landscape, rows of healthy, mature grape vines offer an abundance of food without much effort on their part. The birds help farmers protect their crops by eating away any bugs that might harm the vines. And they enjoy the fruit too!

Swans, geese, and ducks eat the seeds after fruit has fallen to the ground. This is another reason to make sure that you don't have any overgrown trees or shrubs near your pond.
