I'm looking for some small to medium full shade plant suggestions for the VOTS. Low water use would be a plus! Thanks!

Succulents. Mine love full shade. Interestingly, you would think succulents would love the sun here, but the sun has killed more of my succulents than anything else. I have no idea what VOTS means though.

RE: Full shade plants

VOTS = Valley Of The Sun

RE: Full shade plants

Asparagus and foxtail ferns do well for me in full shade, as does vinca (the periwinkle kind).

RE: Full shade plants

Many house plants do well her in full shade - spider plant, many succulents, snake plant, etc.

Go to a couple of nurseries and see what's growing in their shade houses. They have lots of things that like shade.
