There are a number of flowering shrubs you can use: Alpine currant (Ribes alpinum) is an extremely hardy shrub. Its mature height is 3 to 6 feet. Alpine currant is one of the first shrubs to leaf out in the spring. It tolerates pruning well and makes an excellent formal hedge. Other shade tolerant shrubs include viburnum, weigela, five-leaf aralia (Acanthopanax sieboldianus), summersweet clethra (Clethra alnifolia), smooth hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens), black jetbead (Rhodotypos scandens), and snowberry (Symphoricarpos spp.)
