Q.Shade-loving plants for clay soil

newgardener added on July 1, 2011 | Answered

I have a clay-soiled, shady area of my garden and would like to begin a planted feature there. I don’t know how to start or which evergreen shrubs and low maintenance perennials I could possibly use. Could someone help me please?

Hostas are a good choice for this type of location. Lily of the valley, hydrangea and beebalm are also very hardy shade plants.

As for shrubs, yews are a good choice.
