    I am trying to fix up my garden; there is a patch that has tree shade, and I have not been able to find any plants I don't already have there that I can put there. Any ideas?

    Chasmanthium and a little bit of Pachysandra.

    The first plant that comes to my mind for shade is Hosta's. How about a collection of Hosta's?

    Thanks, I'll consider Hostas.

    Check out
    Shade Plants
    in GardenStew Plants. Three pages of them, that should give you lots of ideas.

    Apparently, five pages of them now. Some of the Hostas up there were quite pretty; I'll try finding those.

    Had me confused for a moment, the number of pages is determined by how many 'Results per page' you choose. Mine is set for 100 per page, I would rather see a lot at once than have so many pages to go to. ;)

    Ah; I rarely bother to change the Results per Page setting.
