What grows in shady acidic soil?
Then, what plants can grow in acidic soil?
Here is what you can grow in your acidic soil:
- Azaleas. Azaleas are a gorgeous flowering bush great for adding a splash of color to your landscaping.
- 4. Japanese Pieris.
Likewise, what is slightly acidic soil? A soil with a pH number below 7 is acid, while one with a pH above 7 is alkaline. Garden plants typically grow best in neutral or slightly acid soil (pH 7 or slightly below; see illustration at left). Alkaline soils, in contrast, are typically found in low-rainfall areas.
Similarly, you may ask, what plants do not like acidic soil?
Flowering Perennials Less well-known but worth consideration for acidic soils are plants including crested iris (Iris cristata), butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa), Japanese iris (Iris ensata) and false indigo (Baptisia australis).
Can ferns grow in acidic soil?
Ferns generally prefer shady gardens with acidic soil. Some types of ferns need acidic soil with a lower pH, while others prefer soil that is only slightly acidic. Still others will grow in acidic, neutral or slightly alkaline soils.
