On plant Green hopeful



If it's facing north, it's likely to be in the shade. There are lots of plants which thrive there. Tiarella, Hosta, Tellima, Foxgloves, Ferns (if it's damp) Ajuga, Brunnera, Bergenia, Lily-of-the-valley, Dicentra, some hardy Geraniums like G. phaeum and G. nodosum, Hellebores.

I hope this helps.
