the back side of my house gets No Sun whatsoever and the only thing that's growing there is a few weeds. i want to dig it out and put a shade bed there. i Love hostas, but some of the lighter colored ones need a little light to do good, and i just want some other things back there with some hostas, but don't know what will do well. as i said there's no sun there ever and the ground stays kinda wet.
suggestions?

Here is the link for full shade plants

The Garden Helper

There is also one for trees and shrubs and one for partial shade.

Astilbe is a nice perennial for full shade. Maybe a fern?

I've seen the bleeding hearts in really pretty pinks and reds.

The Lily of the Valley are cute but didn't bloom for very long for me.
