Please can you suggest suitable plants to grow in a north facing garden ?

The garden gets some sunshine in the morning except for one border which is in permanent shade.

The other two borders are about 20/30 cms wide backed by a Privet hedge. I can't grow anything tall because of problems clipping the hedge which might damage plants. I'd like something with colour of possible.

The borders used to be lawn and the soil was quite poor.The permanent shade bed is slightly raised ie made between low walls of bricks.

Any ideas much appreciated....thankyou.

Thankyou for your help.

The Sambucas hasnt ever flowered or had berries. Its growing fast this year though.

The yellow 'whateveritis'  began flowering last week and will continue right to the end of Autumn.
