|Please suggest perennials (other than lilies) to plant in a shady area that has very sandy soil. Thank you!|
|Hosta, Hellebores, Forget Me Nots, Winter Aconite, Woodland Hyacinths, Primroses, Bleeding Hearts, Japanese painted fern and Lady's Mantel are all good choices for shady sites in your gardening region. You can amend the soil with organic matter prior to planting to help your sandy soil hold moisture.
Best wishes with your shade garden!
