Answer: There are a number of shade-tolerant plants with flowers suitable for cutting. Aconitum (Monk's Hood), Campanula (bellflower), Kaffir lily, Digitalis (foxglove), Dicentra (bleeding heart), Astilbe, Francoa (Maiden's wreath), Saxifraga and Tradescantia are some easy to grow favorites. For privacy consider Elephant's ears (no blooms).
To give your new plants the right start be sure to amend the planting area with organic matter (compost or leaf mold) to help the soil drain well yet retain just the right amount of moisture. Enjoy your new shade garden!
