Good plants for partial shade in Northern VA?
We have lived and gardened in our house in northern VA for 17 years, but thanks to a Dawn Redwood tree and a house addition, our formerly full sun garden now only receives about 4-6 hours a day, some morning sun from the east, but more afternoon sun from the south and west. I have lost a lot of plants over the last few years, but the dependable ones still growing there are peonies, astilbe, aster, false indigo, phlox, bee balm, lysimachia (gooseneck loosestrife) and strawberry begonia. I keep trying coneflower and blackeyed susan, but the rabbits keep them clipped. Any ideas for some other good choices to fill in around the existing plants? Bare areas receive slightly less sun. Thanks!
