What is shade for NE?
I have a probably simplistic question (read into a silly question). I have looked through the shade forum and the shade FAQ but am still a little confused. There is a very detailed description on "what is shade", but all I want to know is - what does it mean when a seed pack has "sun/part shade".
Also, there is another reply in the forum/FAQ about the best plants for shade but it is not regionalized. I'm looking for the best perennial plants for New England that are long blooming or bloom and rebloom in the same season and are OK to grow in areas that have 1/2 sun and 1/2 shade (which for New England can be very different from other parts of the Country). Sorry for being so long winded but I've tried to find the answer but have so far only found generic replies. Experts - what are your opinions and experiences? Thank you.
