Will anything grow in full shade?

Posted: 22/06/2013 at 00:04

I ditto a lot of what has already been said as I am a strong fern and dicentra lover, but no-ones mentioned sarcococca hookeriana or the viburnums so I'll throw them into the mix too!  Have fun as I find shade and semi shade the most challenging to get right but the plants really thank you when happy x

I've had much success with the black grass (ophiopogon planiscapus nigrescens), my absolute favourite plant, Heucheras and Hebes. All get on well with each other, give year-round interest, are easy to look after and don't take up too much space.  I don't allow the Heucheras to flower i.e I just cut off the flower heads so that I can enjoy the foliage but it's your choice.  Have fun.
