Answer: Vegetables won't thrive in a shady area except those that do not flower. You can plant lettuce or cabbage in the site, and radishes will grow there, too. Or, you can concentrate on shade loving annuals and perennials such as pansies, lobelia, impatiens. The site might be too small for shrubs, but how about planting hosta, coral bells, astilbe and ferns in the area?
