Here is a picture of how my shade garden began and how it looks now, a year later. A little too much success! It gets the morning sun shown but that's almost all.
I love my Nelly Moser clematis, and I have some wires strung along the fence to encourage it to keep going if it wants to. There's a lot of overcrowding so I'll have to move/edit some plants. The yellow Welch poppies kind of took over, but I do like them so I'll just move them.
