Providing cover for wildlife is easy to do and much appreciated. Try planting a variety of plants from small perennials to tall trees thus mimicking plant communities in nature. Leaving a pile of brush in a quiet corner of the ground works too.
Prefers organically rich, moist, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Performs well in full sun in the North, but prefers some shade (particularly in the heat of the afternoon) in the South.
