Plants for No Sunlight in San Diego

sandiego.gardnerFebruary 1, 2012

This area along the North wall of my home might get one hour of sun in midsummer, but otherwise gets none.

At about 3 X 40 feet, I'm thinking I could have several different varieties. I'm slogging through about 65 entries listed for deep shade in the "Western Gardner", but would like to hear from someone who has experienced this.

I'm avoiding ferns (don't like them), anything toxic or poison (two dogs and a cat) and anything that says invasive.

Here's a photo in late afternoon.

Full Shade

Bamboo (in sunny climates)
Currants (not cold enough for your climate for fruit)
Carolina Allspice
Evergreen Huckleberry (edible, plant like a blueberry)
Flowering Currant

Highbush Cranberry (probably not cold enough for your climate for fruit)
