Shaded area

For years, in a very shaded area facing west about 15 x 15, I had violets growing until they were taken over by ferns, which lasted only one growing season. Now I have only about 4 violet plants and 3 ferns remaining. Some lily-of-the-valleys have started to grow a small patch about 3 feet in diameter. The ferns and lily-of-the-valley were around the north side of the house and have worked their way into the front west side of home. But I have mostly bare ground now instead of the lush greens

If you're looking for plant suggestions, be sure to check out our Plant Encyclopedia (link below). It will allow you to search for shade-loving plants that thrive in your Zone. You look for annuals, perennials, shrubs, or even small trees for shade --- and search by criteria such as bloom time and flower color. When you find a flower you like the Encyclopedia also recommends other plants that look good with it. Check it out at:
