Dry shade offers a particular challenge to PNW gardeners. Over-hanging branches interrupt rainfall and greedy tree roots suck away much of what makes it to the ground. Our dry summers exacerbate these conditions. Luckily, there are quite a few plants that are adapted to these conditions and a good deal of them are natives.
