Looking for shade shrub suggestions
I've got a very shady garden under a tree canopy that has mostly hosta and impatients. I'd like some suggestions on a shrub to use as a backdrop behind the hostas. I currently have 1 peegee hydrangea there but it never blooms so I guess it's not getting enough sun and it also doesn't seem to grow much here. This area gets maybe an hour of morning sun (if that) and then very little filtered evening sun and that's it. Almost completely shaded all day.
Ideally I'd like something that will fill out around 3-5 foot high/wide with some kind of bloom. It doesn't have to be a spectacular bloom and I am actually moreso concerned with lovely full foliage than bloom. Prefer it to be deciduous and green in color. Any suggestions that fit the bill? Would oakleaf hydrangeas be good here or do they need a bit more sun to grow and bloom?
