Ideas for formal container plants in shady, small area?
The area is a small porch by the front door. 1-2 hours of morning sun. In large planter. I'd love a formal looking tree but everything needs more sun.
The only plants that have thrived in this area has been clivia and fuschia.
I currently have an australian tree fern which I will need to move. It leans to get more sun.
Does anyone have ideas for something that is formal looking but can take these conditions? I also suspect the air circulation is not great since 2 azalea trees, 2 azaleas and 1 rhododendron have died.
