Hey Ernie,

I will go ahead and be the first to comment...everything I know I learned from my dad, but here are a few suggestions...

Good plants for sun: Burning bushes (grow big so you can plant in the back of a bed to take up space), Shasta daisies (big, white tall flowers), Purple cone flowers, delphinium, any sort of grasses, shrub roses, coriopsis. We have all of those perennials in our gardens and they have done really well. You can also go to Pioneer on Sante Fe and buy some fairly big rocks to break up the beds. It isn't too expensive. Some other a trellis or two for height and put them along the fence. We did that with some shrub roses (or clematis that climb) and it really gives you some variety in height.) Good shade plants: hastas, coral bells, columbines. Hope that helps!
