I am looking for plants you can grow in 90% to 100% shade. To be clear not ones to produce shade but ones that can live in shade. What I am having trouble with is most of my backyard and a large section of my side yard is total shade. I grow stuff mainly for the chickens and to prevent flooding. What I would like to grow over there is at least some stuff they can eat. I figure I can put some ferns in there for them to peck around and sleep under but what fruit/nut plants can I put in there? I am really just looking for a large list of stuff I can go and pick through and figure out what will grow in my zone. (8b) Ferns are all I have came up with so far. Just looking for some suggestions. Anything the chickens will eat would be what, I want. I started to look but all I can find are ornamental stuff, and lists to make the area pleasing to the eye, which isn't my goal. it would be nice if it worked out that way but I really could careless about the aesthetics of it. Anyhow help would be great. I tried to search around but all the threads seem to be about protecting your garden or creating shade for the chickens.
