Shade tolerant perennials from seed.
I need suggestions for perennials that can be grown from seed for a sloped bank along the street. Low maintenance. Right now, the area is inundated with violets and periwinkle. I'd like to keep some of that and just plant in between, so they need to be tough plants. The area receives very little sun as there is a large oak tree that shades the hill most of the day. It's a steep bank, about 5' drop over 10' or so, about 45 degrees. Hosta may do okay there and I plan to divide some of mine for the area this fall as they begin to die down. Ferns can also be moved. What would go well with these plants?
In spring, there are daffodils that pop up and violets. Once the tree leafs out, the sunlight is dappled.
