Can anyone suggest some good flowers that thrive in acidic soil?
Perennials, annuals, or shrubs? - Thanks!

blueberries

I know they are not just flowers but do have beautifull blossums.
Blueberries absolutley love acidic soil. I live inmontana and have been trying to find a berry forum :( no luck.

i like to plant rasberries blueberries strawberries gooseberries currants grapes and well just any berry i can find i will try.

Unfortunatly our sometimes unpredicible weather makes it fustrating. (its snowed here in july before)

anyway if you haev ahard time with flowers try blueberries yummy

I like the berry idea a lot and could suggest any of the rhododendrons or laurels as good bets. Lots of woodland plants like the lower ph's, so look at them as well...

It is a long list, but I'm not so sure I'd put roses on there... :?

Here's a site I found that shows the ph preference of many plants. Hope it's helpful.
