The Q&A Archives: Shade Garden ideas in MA

Question: I live in MA and have no gardening experience at all. I would like to plant perennials in two small flower beds on either side of my front walk (approx. area=5-6' long X 4' wide). This area is mostly shaded (85% of the day). I like the look of the tall grasses, hostas but I also would like some color. Can you recommend hardy, low maintenance plants and placement ideas? Thank you!
