Answer: Except for the coneflowers, lamb's ear and salvia, the plants you named should do well in partial sun. Additional plants to consider include assorted hostas and ferns, tuberous begonia, wildflowers such as aruncus, cimicifuga, Jacob's Ladder, Virginia Bluebells, and Solomon's Seal, pulmonaria and tricyrtis. In the sunnier portions, try Japanese anemones, herbs such as chives, and spring flowering bulbs. Astilbes thrive in partial shade and moist soil. Clematis enjoy growing in an area where their roots are in the shade and the tops are in the sun. Have fun and go ahead and experiment, remembering that nearly all plants can be transplanted.
