I am helping my parents landscape their new property. The previous owners didn't plant anything. They want to landscape the north and west side of the house. The north side is full shade, and the west side is what I would call dappled to full shade. They live in Zone 5. If you don't have any evergreen suggestions, do you have any suggestions for shrubs that would give winter interest? It's rather drab where they live.
