This is probably one of the best shade plant books I have seen for the southern gardener. The plants selected aren't just hostas and ferns (though they do make an appearance) and it includes an array of flowering shade plants. Not only is the selection great, but the information about each plant is very thorough and has advice specific to each zone in the south.
Southern Shade: A Plant Selection Guide by Jo Kellum (University Press of Mississippi 2008) (635.9543). There are a treasured few shade plants known to every gardener, but this book presents the best plants outside the realm of the azalea and live oak. My rating: 7/10, finished 2009.
