Well, Mr. Smarty Plants will tell you how to search for and find a plant yourself. First, go to our Recommended Species page and select 'Northern California' from the map or the pull-down menu. This will give you a list of 158 native plant species that are commercially available for landscaping in northern California. Next, select the NARROW YOUR SEARCH option and click both "Part shade—2 to 6 hours of sun per day" and "Shade—Less than 2 hours of sun per day". This will give you a list of 85 native plants (herbaceous, shrubs and trees) to choose from.
