I have an area on the north side that is complete shade. I put five whiskey barrels there and want to fill them with some interesting plants other than the usual ferns, hostas, heucheras, although I will use them also. Is there a daphne that will grow in the shade? Maybe something tall that would bloom above the leafy plants below? I appreciate any suggestions.
