Hi,

I live in zone 10a, Los Angeles, and I have a large backyard with mature trees, which create a big, flat area that is always in shade, and a partially shady slope. I have just cleared the area and I'm on the hunt for plants that will grow in the shade. I was in Home Depot today and I found two sets of bulbs, one of them is Astilbe, and the other is called "Lily, Tiger Orange." These are Home Depot-packaged bulbs and unfortunately the latin names are nowhere on the packaging.

I am wondering if I should take these back to the store. When I looked them up neither is listed for zone 10. I am wondering why they can't grow here, perhaps the summers are too hot?

Anyway I am looking for some advice as to whether I should plant these and see what happens, or take them back to the store and do my homework first next time. Any advice appreciated.

V.
