Flower/ground cover for moist shade?
We have what I consider a junky area of our yard on the north side of our home where a 6-foot fence gate prevents much sun from hitting an area that's about 15 feet long and 4 feet wide. We recently planted some cephalotaxus fastigiata there but they are very small and apparently very slow growing, so I'd like to plant something around them to fill in. It's pretty much clay and gravel, but we have added amended topsoil for the shrubs.
Someone suggested violet but could that get out of bounds and into the lawn? Or would it only stay where it's shady?
