Answer: It sounds like your off to a good start with that shady area. I'd suggest vibrunum only if you get 1/2 day of sun. If not it will just get leggy and not flower well. Other plants to try are clumps of Amelanchier, astibe, forget me nots, hosta, sweet woodruff, lily of the valley, any ferns, small leaved rhododendrons such as PJM and bleeding hearts. Check in your shade gardening book for ultimate heights and planting distances and you can create a nice shade garden area with these plants. I have many of these plants growing in my zone 4 location on the north side of our house and they do well.
