Shrubs/Plants for total shade?

Posted: 04/05/2014 at 13:39

Sarcococca is good in shade and smells nice in winter.

Cornus mas seems to be coping as shade has overtaken it.

Choisya does surprisingly well in shade. Euonymous fortunei in all its many varieties.

Hazels are good.

 ferns, hostas, aquilegias, foxgloves, pulmonarias, dicentras, some of the  hardy geraniums, epimediums. 

Will that do for a start. I'm sure there'll be more suggestions

A virtual poke through. I like that Victoria.

You get a picture of gardens from the lists don't you? Maybe the picture is totally wrong but it's still good fun

There's leaf miner to consider as well.

I'm no expert either

A bit of fun, that's all Wo.

There are lots of threads I pass by on the forum, we're not all interested in everything.

Something for everyone, ignore what doesn't interest you.

Mike, my poor brain. I've read through those posts and all the plants have fallen out already

I'll add Daphne tangutica, Dicentra macrocapnos (called something else now), yellow rattle, greater and lesser knapweed, elecampane, ragged robin and Pulmonaria rubra.

I did a species count many years ago, there were hundreds but some have been swamped by this lot, stinging nettles, goosegrass, woundwort, wood avens, enchanter's nightshade, creeping buttercup, cow parsley, hogweed and many of their mates

Holm oak leaf problem?

must be the wine Melanie, growing tips I meant to type

If it's making new growth and dropping some old leaves that's OK. If new growth is yellowing and dropping, that's not OK

could someone ID this please

I'd be interested to see it when it's settled and fully in flower
