sun-tolerant shade plants?
I have a city garden, with walls on all sides. Various parts of the garden are in full shade, deep shade, or partial shade. But in some seasons or hours, some spots get quite a bit more sun than most shade plants like. For example, now with the trees leafless, and the sun still to the south in the afternoon, my lightest-shade bed is in full sun. What's more it gets extra reflected sun from the windows on the nearby houses. By the middle of April, this bed will get only brief licks of sun, and about half a day of dappled shade. There's another area that gets no sun at all, except in the middle of the afternoon in the middle of summer. So what can I plant? Nothing that needs sun can live in my garden, but neither do things do too well if they are sensitive to sun. Suggestions for some perennials that are nice on a small scale?
