Difficult sun/shade location looking for plant that fits
The location is bounded by house on south and 6-ft wall on east side. Car needs to be parked in this area so there is only about a 6-ft strip of space north of house to grow plants in.
Last September, I planted an Aloe (vera or barbadensis) and an Agave geminiflora in the SE corner where the house and wall meet. I don't think the aloe is going to make it.
Here is the problem. At the height of summer, there is full direct sunlight. At the height of winter, there is full shade and only indirect sunlight. I've looked at lists of plants that grow in shade but I believe these lists are for consistently shady areas not subject to full sun a good part of the year.
Come September, I'll be looking for some candidate plants to either fill in around or replace the aloe/agave. Does anyone have a similar situation? What plants have you found to grow under these extreme conditions?
