Oakleaf hydrangea Snow Queen is a great shrub for shady sites. Jack in the Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum), Canadian wild ginger (Asarum canadense), Green-and-gold (Chrysogonum virginianum), Partridgeberry (Mitchella repens) and Heartleaf Foamflower (Tiarella cordifolia), ferns, primroses and hostas are attractive perennials for shade. You can fill in around these with bright annuals - impatiens, lobelia, pansies, etc. Enjoy your shade garden!
