Favorite 'sun' plant that takes more shade than you would think
Since its in bloom now, I'll start off with one of the most obvious, and glorious ones == Rudbeckia "Goldstrum."
From what little Ive picked up, it seems that certain varieties and species of pestemon, agastache, monarda, heliopsis, catmint, monarda, veronica, and many more, are more shade tolerant than others of the same genus. I'm looking to find out what these are, and trust people's experiences more than garden catalogs(well, -some- garden catalogs;-)
So what works for you?
