Winter shade/ summer sun
10' of my front yard (in the Inland Empire, Ca) gets no sun all winter because it faces north and the houses around mine stick out and cut off the morning and evening sun. But in the summer the same area gets 6-8 hours of sun a day. I would like to plant flowers there, especially yellow and white ones, maybe 2 or 3 feet high. I know I need sun plants that will tolerate 4 months of winter shade, but can't find too many. I'm trying monkeyflower now. Any other recommendations?
