One part of our garden is shaded by our neighbours leylandii hedge on one side and our own newly created raised bed on another.  It gets no sun - it didn't even before we added to its woes with the raised bed.

I know some ferns will be OK as we had some there before.  I'm looking for other suggestions, particularly for anything which can add some colour.

    I have a similar spot under our biggest ash tree - Vinca Major seems to have survived this summer with very little watering, but I'm not really enthusiastic about it.  I'm going to plant some silver-leaved lamiums there next spring.
