Plants to attract wild life in a shady concrete courtyard
Hi, I want to attract as many bees/butterflies and moths as possible to my courtyard, unfortunately it doesn't get a lot of sun. My perennial geraniums, which I love and do well flower for ages and attract hoverflies and some bees. I have herbs such as lavender, mint, etc., but they don't produce masses of flowers, because of the shady conditions. The tobacco plants do okay, not fantastic, but they do attract hoverflies. I've lived here for 16 years and have only ever seen a handful of butterflies over the years. Are there any butterfly bushes that do well or okay in such conditions? If anyone can suggest any plants that will tolerate the conditions that I have I would be very grateful.
