Shade-tolerant, drought-tolerant attractive shrubs?
Do such a thing exist? My front bed is about 15 ft long and 5-7 ft deep, only the 2-3 ft which border the yard get any sun, the rest of the bed (by the house) is total shade. I'm in Austin, so it still gets indecently hot.
Any suggestions? I am really desperate, the previous owner ripped out everything he had (why?????) and so I'm starting without any idea of what to grow. I don't want to water a whole lot, though I might for the right plant (ie, something scented or flowered.)
