Sunny in the summer, Full shade in winter
Hi, this is my first posting, but I love this forum - have gotten lots of good information.
I have a problem area and would love some suggestions: Looking for perennial flowering plants for a raised bed on the south side of my yard - I recently pulled out a tangerine and avocado tree because they weren't getting enough sun, and the fruit wasn't ripening until March or later. During the summer it is in full sun, but because of the wood fence and shadow of the neighbor's house, from October to March it's in full shade - maybe an hour of late afternoon sun. I like bright colored flowers and interesting foliage. My soil is pretty heavy clay, but it's had lots of garden soil mixed into it.
