raised beds with not much sun

I downsized to a smaller house 4 years ago. My garden is a raised bed going fully around end house. One side just gets morning sun. Other side then gets sun later in day, I am so disappointed this year. All my clematis have wilted and gone rotten. I seem to have no colour.. Can you recommend some plants I could sow for colour in shaded garden. rita 370, Shankill, Co Dublin Posted: 10/08/2017

A half-day of sunshine is not shaded and most plants will cope if watered and fed.

Clematis is prone to wilt disease but that is not due to shade. Try Clematis viticella hybrids, which as more resistant.
