I am looking for part shade/shade plants of max height 2 ft that can be planted in with my iris' and that'll hide the dying foliage. Something that'll not distract from the iris's while in bloon, and yet, have thier own beautiful flowers after the iris' are through.



im not good on plants myself yet, well not many but i like astilbe its about 12 to 18inches tall lovely foilage and pink,, reds or white fluffy flowers, also cranesbill or wild geraniums are nice, lower growing though than astilbe,so many more but sure others will addvise to :o) welcome to GOY
