Answer: I found an excellent publication from Ohio State University that addresses exactly what you describe in terms of dealing with shade and moist soils. It has dozens and dozens of plant recommendations. Here's the web address: http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/1000/1243.html You can download the publication and take the plants lists to the nursery to find just the right plants for your landscape. Enjoy!
