i've got a south facing bank under trees. The soil is very dry and shallow due to th etree roots. Can anyone suggest any flowers or plants that may grow there?



About the only two I can think of are Hypericum calycinum and Lamium maculatum - all will need watering until they establish though.

What about bulbs in pots, always makes such a nice display. Pots I mean, one can really pot just about anything, and with the right care voila!

Ivy, Euphorbia amygdaloides and Lamium galeobdolon all manage in those conditions. Bluebells too.
