Plan for the future when you are old and cannot do gardening (or you are lazy right now, but like nice exteriors. This is the easiest scenario: Hydrangeas and Hostas..
Lamium is an amazing shade/light sun ground cover that can fill a bed in one or two seasons - pink or purple flowers (shown here around hosta)
Shade loving perennials:Fern, Hosta, Astilbe, Primula, Foxglove and Coralbells
This garden plan uses hydrangeas, hostas, and lamium for a part-shade location.
