Shade Tolerant Evergreens

Q. Are there any evergreens that will tolerate shade?

A. Most evergreen plants require at least six hours or more of full direct sunlight. There are a few, however, that will tolerate shadier conditions, such as yews (Taxus), Canadian hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) and American holly (Ilex opaca). Determining shade can sometimes be complex.
