I have a large front porch facing North, but it is open shade, so bright shade. No direct sun ever, tho. My house is an L shape, so the door is actually in the corner, so the darkest area. I did hostas, boston ferns, some rex begonias, sweet potato vines, and heuchera in pots last year, which looked good, then put a christmas tree in a large pot for the holidays, and now that I removed that it is BARE. Too early for anything but petunias, and that is not enough height.
Any suggestions? My porch is screaming for some nature.
