I am looking for a tall forgiving plant. It will get about 4 hours of sun from 11-3. Water does not get there. I planted a philipine violet, which I loved, but our 10 degree temp killed it a couple of years ago. Any suggestions?

What about a Lilac, Rhododendron or Witch Hazel?

northern sea oats (Chasmanthium latifolium) if an ornamental grass is ok. i have had good luck with peegee hydrangeas (Hydrangea paniculata) in similar conditions with only minimal need for a sprinkler. don't try oakleaf hydrangeas though, one hour of your summer sun will do it in. as steadycam3 said, a lilac would be good too. just about any sumac should be ok.

If water does not get there, what about a succulent of some kind like yucca or agave?
