Doreen,

The philodendron would be okay but in a bad winter would be killed. Shade is a tough thing for most plants to handle. I would consider Aucuba and Fatsia if they are not too tall for what you need there. Cast iron plant and shrimp plant are two more ideas.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
