would this be suitable for shade in KY - I have a bed the same shape and size but would like a little more color. instead of the ligularia I might like a shrub with color. any suggestions. Also would a variegated red twig dogwood fit in this garden?

Yes, I believe you would be able to apply this planting scheme to your shady location in Kentucky. In regards to a shrub alternative to the Ligularia, you may want to consider a Hydrangea or a Rhododendron. Good luck!

Adding shade gardens to my yard instead of thinning grass... - Im trying to have less grass to cut and more interest in my yard. What is the ground cover border plant? It's very interesting. I live in Zone 8, in the hot, humid N. Mississippi.
