:roll: Anyone help me with names of any Texas perinneals that can take almost all shade. I have a flower bed along fence on South side of my yard and I didn't realize it gets very little sun :? Now I'd love to have mostly flowering plants there. Thanks for any help.

Cedar Sage, pigeonberry, turk's cap, pipevine, lyre-leaf sage. All will bloom in the shade. Many other salvias as well.

Technically Turks Cap will flower in 100% shade, but the flowering is minimal and I have been unable to get it to grow anywhere near the size of plants that get even a little sun.

I know these aren't flowers, but they have caladiums now that rival many flowers that would love that spot also.

Could it be the difference is yours is "almost all shade" while mine is 100% all shade?

Mine was under all day total shade of an 8' fence for a year and did nothing, next year I moved it to about 80% shade and it went nuts.
