    Can you help me decide what to plant in

    my garden that only gets a bit of morning sun then it's primarily shade.

    We want to put some Hostas in (easy one for me to figure out) but I want to add more....

    Our garden is 3 feet wide directly in front of the house by about 8 feet then it goes down in a patter about 8 more feet

    I have read the Bleeding hearts are good perenials any other suggestions?
    Forgot to mention I am not a big gardener so plants that require low maintaining would be perfect me/us!

    My Mood
    Coleus is another shade plant. I strongly recommend going to the nursery and looking to see what shade perennials are available. The reason I say that is because I misjudged how much sun I get in the front of my house and put in the wrong kind of shade/sun plants. They have not done well and need to be moved. Nurseries usually will have the kinds of plants that do well in your area and that gives you a better chance of success.
