Looking for plants that will do well on a west facing porch that gets morning shade then lots of sun and heat in the afternoon. Would like to stay away from flowering plants if possible, love the green foliage such as evergreens and ferns.

i love the evergreens and ferns too!!! but, i also love flowers and different types of plants not a green thumb here but, i love watching them grow and bloom and die, but they come back as soon as it gets warm which is what i love most about flowers and differnet types of plants!!!:-]

Did you mean "ON the porch" as in container plants?

Or do you want something in the ground?
