From:Rockport, TX Region: Southwest Topic: Shade Tolerant Title: Recommendations for native shade plants in sandy soil Answered by: Nan Hampton
I live in Rockport, TX, and would like to plant a small, shaded triangular corner (bounded on 2 sides by wooden fence)in my front yard. The area has limited southern exposure due to shading by live oaks & receives little or no sunlight. Soils are sandy. Any recommendations?
Here are some suggestions for plants found in Aransas County, Texas that should do well in sandy shade or part shade:
