The Q&A Archives: Very little sun

Question: What shrub would grow best in a extremely shady spot with moist soil conditions.

Answer: Astilbe, Ligularias, Old Fashion Bleeding Hearts and the beautiful Goose-neck Lysimachia or Lysimachia clethroides all do well in shade and moist soil. I have moist shade (luckily) and the shrub that I grow is Clethra Alnifolia - with late summer white wands of flowers that smell exactly like bubble gum.

Hope one of these plants works for you!
