In western Oregon it will grow in part shade-part sun although more vigorously in shade. Somewhat invasive but easily controlled.

this native plant makes a very pretty clump all year in our partly shaded rockery. Doesn't ever need any attention at all. The flowers are not showy, but cute.

An adorable relative to epimedium. The leaves' shape resembles the footprint of a duck, hence the common name of "ducks' feet." Native to my 97008 zip. Likes shade; not picky about watering.

A charming, elegant, native groundcover that is extremely garden-worthy. Plants form a low mound of fine-textured evergreen leaves, bearing airy sprays of delicate white flowers. The habit is clumping at first, but these will slowly spread to form a small patch.
