Screening plants for containers with low-moderate sunlight

Zone San Diego, CA | willy_d added on November 13, 2016 | Answered

Any suggested plants? Although I live in San Diego, with optimum growing weather, my patio faces north and only gets a few hours of direct sunlight about 5 months a year. Also, because of the drought, interested in varieties that don't require frequent watering. Thanks for any suggestions!
