dwarf chenille (Acalypha pendula) is a good ground cover for shady place.

Thunbergia battiscombei can be twined up onto a four foot fence and does OK in the shade.

In deep shade the grass dies out and other stuff does well

I am getting my second blooms on my Pagoda Clerodendrum after I cut it back, I love how it just stands out in the garden.
Nice Cassia, I got mine from seeds by Onalee and just had to cut it back. I like the ginger.

Here's some blooms around my garden.

My cassia is just now starting to bloom. Sure wish the big cleradendrum trees would boom but they haven't for years. I'm thinking of yanking them out but little ones pop up all over the place. This plant is the star burst one. Any suggestions for how to get it to bloom again??

Bonnie if you're talking about those with the purple and green leaves, I did yank mine out. They get flowers in the winter, like Dec. and Jan. and we always freeze right about then and I lose them.

But the pagoda with the orange flowers blooms most the summer months and I cut back the first blooms and get a nice second bloom. I can give you some if your want, I get new plants popping up every spring.

Yes, you have the right cleradendrum and looks like I'll be yanking them out for the rest of my life. They pop up everywhere.

Yes, would like the pagoda ones. They are beautiful. Thank you for asking.
