need a shade-loving small tree or shrub
Hi all. I'd like to plant a small tree or shrub (not above 8ft tall or so) to plant in my side yard in front of my kitchen window. The space is about 8 ft wide by 20 feet long and the long dimension is on roughly on a north/south axis. It's shaded on the east by my neighbor's tall evergreens and only gets an hour or so of late afternoon sun before being shaded by my house. The rest of the time the space is quite shady. I'd really like to grow something here so I can hang a feeder and have some birds to look at while I wash the dishes. I live in Baltimore City, and I'm only planting things that are native to the mid-Atlantic. I've browsed around on gardening sites and nursery catalogs, but have so far only found things listed as 'shade tolerant' and I really want something that would thrive here. (I do plan to plant some native shade-loving wildflowers eventually as well.) Any suggestions? Thanks!
