Which plants would do well in a shady north-facing SF garden?
I have a sloped (about 30-45 degrees angle) space (about 4 feet by 8 feet) that needs love. The spot has tall buildings (3 stories) on west and south side, and partly on the east side, so the only open exposure is north. Right now moss grows well there but I would like something more decorative.
It is a mid-foggy part of San Francisco. I am curious about native plants but are they a lot of work? I am a very inexperienced gardener. Or should I just pick a few ferns?
I would greatly appreciate your advice.
