West facing shaded area need vigorous heat capable plant

7 years ago

So I have a spot facing west that is shaded until around 3-5pm when it literally bakes. I've tried the standard shade plants, Astible, Dicentra, some shade loving salvia, but everything seems to whither in the heat. I hate to resort to hostas which ring the other side of the house, any vigorous shade plant that can tolerate a few hours of heat and sun? Not looking for Ajuga, lilly of the valley, asarum etc.. really was hoping for an interesting plant, not necessarily ground cover.
