I have a grove of oaks out back that we are no longer mowing under. I threw in some ferns and hostas last year and they're doing great! Thought I'd try some color, so I'm thinking of putting in some astilbe, too. Do you know if they're deer resistant, chico? They really are
Our front yard is a Shasta daisy field--pretty, but oh-so-invasive.
Still, it's very pretty when they're all in bloom--I'll have some pics soon that I'll post elsewhere.
