We have many uncommon or native plants that can take varying amounts of shade. The sedge, Carex plantaginea, is highly recommended - easy to grow and versatile. Very dense shade (under pine trees where no grass or weeds grow) is very difficult - the listed plants probably won't grow there either. Not all plants are available every season.
