I have roses and hostas planted. What else is easy to grow? I’m in South Georgia. Parts of the area has shade and the other part gets more mid-morning and early afternoon sun.

There is grass growing and weeds trying to grow.

Just looking for more to grow. I have a hibiscus plant potted in another area of the yard. I have cactus growing in my Russian tortoise pen. I plan on taking a thick pad and trying to grow in the sulcata side but, but it only has one pad right now so I don’t want to pluck it just yet.

Just a few ideas off the top of my head:
Clumps of fescue, pampas, or fountain grass
Boston fern or spider plant
Lilac
African violets
Cat's ear (mine absolutely loves it!)
Rose of sharon
Baby's breath
Air plants (Lowes sells them all the time)
Lots and lots of clover (NOT oxalis!!!)

I would plant grape vines along the borders, and trellis them along the fence. Rose of Sharon, hibiscus throw off very nice colorful, edible blooms (and leaves). Mulberry trees as well. Very edible leaves.

Almost forgot - get some banana trees growing too. Our Sully loves banana leaves...
