Please help a beginner choose plants
I have these 2 planters and I'm trying to choose the best plants.
I am in Scotland (zone 8 I think), south facing garden but the location of the planters is shaded most of the day. The garden is pretty bright with daylight, but no direct sunlight in that location.
I like big vibrant scarlet reds such as rhododendrons, camellias, giant geraniums etc. Is anything like this possible in full shade (albeit in reasonable daylight)?
I don't mind if they are perennial or annual.
If this is unrealistic, I would maybe go for some kind of non-flowering low maintenance evergreen.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
