Some great perennials for shady sites include Clivia (Kaffir lily), Digitalis (Foxglove), Oxalis (Wood sorrel), Agapanthus (Lily of the Nile), Campanula (Bellflower), Helleborus, Cyclamen, hosta, and ferns of all kinds. You can fill in with shade loving annuals such as lobelia, impatiens, fuchsias and baby's tears. Enjoy your garden.
