We have a 12'x55' space between two mobile homes. There is an apricot tree and a cherry tree, and they create full shade. A few violets are doing well there, but I would like to add some shade-loving plants of medium and low height. Can you suggest a few good plants for an intimate garden?

Hostas are a good shade loving perennial. Some bushes that grow in the shade are azalea, and rhododendron, and the best annuals for shady areas are impatiens. They come in a variety of colors, and they bloom throughout the summer. (07/27/2009)

Fern or coleus would work. Also, any type ground cover. (08/03/2009)
Could be a great spot to grow a patch of lettuce and spinach for salads. You could always grow some tomatoes in pots in the sun elsewhere and have a nice addition to your meals. (08/03/2009)
