Answer

Shady, wet locations are a real challenge for growing flowering perennials. For spring flowering, try primroses (Japanese primroses do particularly well in very damp conditions), columbine (Aquilegia), and bleeding heart (Dicentra).

For summer blooms try astilbe, hardy begonias, monkshood (Aconitum), or foxglove (Digitalis).

For fall try windflower (Anemone hupehensis), bugbane (Actea racemosa) or toad lily (Tricyrtis hirta).
