    A part of my garden gets sunlight from 10AM to 2PM and is under total shade rest of the time due to the neighbors trees near our wall. I’ve always wanted to plant flowers there because it’s kind of bare but always not sure what. It seems most flowers love direct sunlight and some have instructions saying should be in a partly shaded area but my specific corner is under total shade. Hyacinths in early spring and few roses after are what I have and that’s it, not really maximized and I don’t like that. What can you recommend? Thank you very much.

    I’d suggest hydrangea, bleeding heart and fuchsia. They all thrive well in shady areas and as well as bear flowers with bright colors. Even under the shade, they’ll still catch your attention.
