  • Helleborus x hybridus blooming in my garden in January. Cut off old leaves that are damaged and new growth will quickly fill in.
  • Poet's Laurel, ( Danae racemosa ) evergreen shrub, great for dry shade Apply a one inch layer of mulch to keep soil from drying out too quickly.
  • Deciduous holly ( Ilex verticillata 'Winter Red' ) holds its fruit for months. Plant one male pollinator nearby for best fruit display.
  • Cedrus deodara 'Divinely Blue.' This conifer is hardy to Zone 6 and provides color year around. Give plenty of space to grow.

    Gardners are such wonderful, generous and loveable people. Sharing advice, abundance and encouragement is part of the payback for getting friendly with Mother Nature and digging in the dirt. : )

    Marcia, you will get better answers if you re-post your question as a new question. However, I will tell you if you have a significant amount of shade, no grass will be happy there. Even the most shade-tolerant turf grass needs about six hours a day of sun.
