How much shade do shade plants need?
I am redoing a planting area out front that gets at most in the middle of summer 3.5 hours of sun from 9:30 - noon. In the winter it doesn't even get that much.
It is shaded by the neighboor's large redwoods and because of the angle of sun it takes that long to get over the tops. Then it is shaded by the house.
Is that too much sun for shade loving plants? Are there some shade loving plants that can take that much? What perennial plants would grow there but also grow low, less then 3 ft, and not very wide because it is by a walkway?
Thanks for your suggestions.
