I wonder if anybody can help me. An area in my garden is in shade for quite a lot of the day but it does receive some sun. The area isn't moist but I water the whole garden thoroughly every other night in the summer so that I can grow plants such as hydrangeas without problems I currently grow some sedum there but would like to redo it and make it more colourful and varied. I really like herbaceous perennials but most of them need full sun. However, I think these plants would do well in this spot, please can anybody advise:

- Astrantia 'Roma' (Masterwort)
- Lobelia
- Campanula Lactiflora
- Speedwell
- Stachys Officinalis

Also, if anybody can suggest any other plants similar to these which would do well, I would be very grateful.

Ferns do well in shade and there are some beautiful varieties around.

Heuchera will tolerate shade. Woodland plants like cyclamen and violets do well.
