About planting leaf plants...

I am an avid gardener and use this website often (thanks for the cool site) and I use the "Planting by the moon" dates given for vegetables. My question is this, Do you have "moon-dates" for flowers and shrubs etc. also? I have some elephant ear bulbs and some caladium bulbs I am wanting to plant, but I am not sure what sign to plant them in. Can you help me? Thanks so much.

There are not Moon dates for

There are not Moon dates for shrubs and flowers. If you assume flowers are "above-ground," then it would better to plant during the light of the Moon--from the new Moon to full Moon.
