After the daffodils -- What then?
I have a large area that is shaded by four very tall oak trees. A few years ago I planted several hundred daffodils and they have done well because they bloom long before the trees start to leaf out.
My question is this. What can I grow in this area after the daffodils have bloomed? I leave their foliage undisturbed until it has turned brown but what else could I grow in this area after the daffodils have faded? I tried a few astilbe last season and they seemed to do OK but didn't have much of a visual impact. I also tried a few foxglove but they are biennials and I don't think mine produced any seedlings for future years. The shade is not total in summer -- more of a dappled pattern. I would prefer perennials with low maintenance requirements.
