|I would like to plant a dramatic tall plant in a spot that is all shade. Will a tall ornamental grass take shade? If not, can you suggest something that is tall, will take shade, and have fairly all-season interest?
|I don't know of any ornamental grasses that will thrive in such a shady spot; you might be better off with a shrub. Here are a few suggestions:
Japanese barberry (Berberis thunbergii)
Summersweet (Clethra alnifolia)
Burning bush (Euonymus alatus)
Oak leaf hydrangea (H. quercifolia)
Inkberry (Ilex glabra)
Drooping leucothoe (L. fontanesiana)
I hope this helps!
