  • My suggestion would be to go with native grasses that would typically be found in that setting. Do you know what Zone you are in? You can find it here.


    This will make it easier for you to find plants that would be suitable and thrive in your area.

    Sue, one more would be Trumpet Vine. These are lovely, for the hummingbirds love these, and they are so lovely. Have a great day, J.

    We live on the banks of a year-round creek that often reaches the top of it's banks in the rainy season. It has taken huge trees down, but the one thing that always survives and thrives, is FERN. The runner-roots seem to hold on tighter than any other plant and they're attractive to boot!
