Hi, looking to fill a shady area under evergreens in Park Ridge. What kind of plants are these? Would they work well in the shade? Do they divide for replanting like hostas? if so, Does anyone have some to sell or where is best to buy? other suggestions? Thanks!

I just read this about “Lily of the valley” be careful. How poisonous are lily of the valley? Chemistry. All parts of the plant are highly poisonous, including the red berries which may be attractive to children. If ingested—even in small amounts—the plant can cause abdominal pain, vomiting, reduced heart rate, blurred vision, drowsiness, and red skin rashes.

Lily of the valley are not only poisonous but have deep traveling underground roots so they start showing up in the grass and you have to dig a hole to get them out

I will likely have TONS to give once it warms up enough to dig up. I need more sunshine. Please PM me. I would love to give you some!
