I need a low-growing bushy shrub to fit in a full shade corner. Prefer evergreen, but deciduous is ok. What are my options, Amy?

Finding plants for full shade is difficult.

If you are like me and don’t mind trying plants that are outside your growing zone, check out distylium. In your zone 6 garden, it will need extra winter protection. If you have some dappled light in this spot, try barberry for colorful leaves. Or, Sundrop Spirea that can handle morning sun and afternoon shade.

Thanks for writing!
