Fatsia japonica - Japanese aralia. Happy in full sun to shade. A tropical-looking, evergreen shrub with gorgeously glossy, deep green palmate leaves.

Hellebore (Helleborus), also called Christmas rose, is one of the earliest bloomers in shady gardens. Look for its burgundy, pink, cream, green, or white flowers in late winter or early spring.
