More and more gardeners have shady areas to landscape, and our shade collection just keeps growing. Don't let anyone tell there's no way to have a grand garden in the shade--from all the greenery below to loads of color, season after season.

The scores of plants below all tolerate partial or complete shade, so if you need color and foliage interest under trees, beneath shrubs, or anyplace else that's shady, just take your choice.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
