Full sun in summer, full shade in winter - suggestions?
I have a pretty large bed that wraps around the north side of my house which gets zero sun in the winter and a full day of baking sun in the summer. Does anyone have any suggestions for plants that will thrive in this environment? So far I have tried salvias (too shady), hostas (too sunny), astilbe (probably too sunny), ipomoea (too shady). I have a japanese maple that is hanging in there, a hydrangea that is hopefully hanging in there and a couple of abutilon that seem happy. So far, hellebores seem to love this site, but I need some ground cover to plant with them. Thanks!
