toad lilies

I normally don't really plan planting flowers

I've decided that I need to be more organized and actually plan flower gardens.

I've discovered that Toad Lilies would most likely work in an underutilized shady area of my yard, but my ground has a clay base

Any ideas? Do you need more info from me?

Re: toad lilies

You can break up the clay and help lighten it by adding other organic material, sand, and peat. That's a lot of work.

I am lazy. I'd go with coreopsis, daylillies or spiderwort. I'm sure there are other flowers that would do well in clay, too.

Re: toad lilies

What about hosta? Hydrangeas?

Depending on how much shade there is, you may be able to find a variety of iris that would work. Irises are supposed to like sun, but I have some in a part of my yard that gets very little sun and there are blooms.
