Hi Debbie,

I've been researching shade gardens recently, to handle an area of my yard that is in complete shade.

The Burgess catalog offers a complete shade garden assortment--it's called "Color in the Shade" and it's an assortment of perennials.

Here's what they list:

Regal Blue Hosta
Red Trinity Plant
Mixed Astilbe
Blue Columbine
Lily of the Valley

I'm already growing the Astilbe, Columbine and Lily of the Valley in other areas, and they're very pretty.
