PLEASE HELP!!! I AM IN THE DARK!!! I am about to start a large landscaping job that will have a shaded area 85' X 35' that will be 3 tiered w. natural colored brick and will have small red lava rock (3/4") as the mulch medium. The problem is that I need to find some perrenials and groundcovers that like to be in the shade most of the time and YES - I have visited local nurseries to ask questions. The most common response is hostas and ferns................................... BBBBBOOOOORRRRRRRIIIIIIINNNNNNNGGGGGGG! I will add these in, b/c they are in the existing landscape - but I need something with a little more spice. The home is white, black and tan. VERY LARGE. The homeowners like reds, but I have been told that red plants do not fare well in the shade. PLEASE SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS FOR ME!!!
