    Comments about American Meadows Shade Garden 10' x 4':

    I planted the shade garden in a small shaded area (of course!) in my yard. I figured it would take a couple of years to fill in but couldn't believe how quickly the plants took off--even after not being able to plant them immediately. Unfortunately, I didn't have a true 10x4' area (mine is 9x3.5') so they are sort of squished together, but regardless, I couldn't have been happier with how it turned out. My neighbor comments on it every time she walks by.

    Comments about American Meadows Shade Garden 10' x 4':

    This was simple to plant with the enclosed 'floor plan'. It is slow growing, but that is to be expected with shade plants. I expect it to be glorious next summer!

    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).
