Shady Dry location

jwillislawJuly 24, 2013

This is small cutout in a shady and quite dry side of the house. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what would work here? Hardy Begonia? Climbing Hydrangea? Anything else? Its under the eaves so it gets very little rain.

Barrenwort (epimedium) thrives in dry shade.

Perhaps cyclamen? But they would be dormant for a portion of the growing season...

Lily of the valley. Some Ajuga if you irrigate until they get established. Sedum is the best groundcover for dry soil, that won't be getting occasionally moist. Dead Nettle, there are several varieties, some look really nice. They do well in occasionally, sometimes a long while, drier areas.
