PLANTS CONDITIONED FOR
Farm woodlots often contain
large trees, a canopy of smaller
trees, a layer of shrubs and a rich
forest floor of herbaceous plants.
Why does this dry shade work in
nature but not in the home garden?
First, the natural forest has had
many years to build a layer of rich
topsoil and humus from the
decomposition of literally tons of
leaves, plant parts and other organ
isms. A healthy forest is a combi
nation of a variety of species that
coexist in harmony.
In suburbia, we replant trees and
shrubs into remaining subsoil, and
select trees that survive in less
desirable soils. Highly competitive
trees, like norway maple, survive
by having a shallow root system
that sucks up all the surrounding
soil, water, and leaves. These trees
shade out competing plants. This
condition is called dry shade. Here
is a list of plants that survive in dry
