Wondering if you should amend your soil when you plant? Our answer is no: we do not recommend adding anything to the soil when you plant one of our shrubs – no top soil, garden soil, potting mix, potting soil, compost, manure, or any other type of bagged or baled product out there.

White and silver plants tend to glow in the low light, while darker colors fade into the background. Using white can make your garden more inviting when the light wanes. These 27 container combination recipes use primarily white flowers, with a few light colors and the occasional dark color to round out the options.
