Hi,

Thanks for writing. You have a lot of options --- there are many good plants for shady situations in your Zone.

The easiest way to get a list and learn more about each variety is to do a search in our Plant Encyclopedia --- in the Advanced Search, check the ""groundcover"" box in the landscape uses section and also the shade box. If you want to try searching for other special features, check their corresponding boxes as well. Check it out at:
