Flowers to Grow in Shady Acidic Soil

What kind of flowers can I plant in a shady location with acid soil?

Most plants prefer a slightly acidic soil. Take a look at what is growing well for your friends and neighbors with similar growing conditions. One of my favorite shade combinations is ferns, hosta, astilbe and wild ginger. I have seen all of these growing in the acidic soil. Look toward some of your native wildflowers for early spring interest. Other perennials to consider include bleeding heart, snakeroot (Actaea formerly Cimicifuga), meadowsweet (Filipendula vulgaris), foam flower (Tiarella), and Meadow Rue (Thalictrum).
