Re: Suggestion for full shade plant

Message from ELAINE HUTSON

First you have to add a lot of compost, I use my mower and grind all the leaves of the trees in Fall and throw it on the beds, you do this year after year and you will create a half decent place to plant. Cherry trees have quite a few surface roots, so what you have is dry shade, start with small plants and plant in Fall.
For shrubs, nothing tolerates those conditions better than aucuba picturata has yellow leaves, and if you have a male close by it produces lovely red berries in Jan. choisya aztec pearl is another evergreen shrub with lovely white flowers in spring.
For bulbs, hardy cyclamen and erythronium, for ground covers lamium sliver beacon, for perennials any of the white and green hostas, brunnera Jack frost, liriope silver dragon, I believe, polygonatum hybridum, there is a variegated variety, geranium phaeum 'Margery fish, and try anemone hybridum Honorine Jobert, try kerengeshoma palmatum. With the perennials, it will take some effort to get them established.
Good luck.

Is it an ivy geranium or pelagornium?, its leaves look like geranium phaeum 'Sambor' but it seems to be trailing which sambor does not do, it spreads from a clump.

Starting points for a few of them.... 1: hydrangea (oakleaf? lacecap), 9: Geranium phaeum (samobor?) 14; another hardy geranium - easier to identify in flower, 15 Weigela? (several of the variegated ones before this reminded me of Weigela or Deutzia), 16: Spiraea?, 17: Hibiscus? (they certainly come into leaf late), 19; hardy geranium (sanguinem), 23: Heuchera, 24: Centaurea montana, 25: Peony - only identifiable further in flower, 26: Another cranesbill geranium (not familiar), 29: Iris (only identifiable in flower).
