I'd like some suggestions on which plants to choose for the two terracotta planters ive just bought. They are going to help frame my front door and compliment my new block paved driveway.
They are in a north facing shaded aspect, which only gets sun for a short time in the evening. But as you can see from the photo, the little bit of sun they will get is dappled by the shadow cast by a neighbours tree. This photo was taken about 6:30pm, click on it to enlarge...
I did consider Box pyramids, but I think even Box likes some sun. Something that grows about 3ft tall would look good, but I realise that the shaded aspect means I may have to settle for something like Hostas or ferns? Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks
