Perennial Plants for Shade

Add brightness and depth to dark corners with shade-loving flowers

A shady spot in your landscape offers the opportunity to grow some wonderful, unique plant selections that not only tolerate shade but actually prefer it. These include richly-colored flowers, plants with lush green foliage, flowering groundcovers, and vines that will climb and provide cover. Best of all, air temperatures in a shade garden can be 15-25 degrees cooler than in the open sun! So choose your favorites and plant a relaxing place to cool off and unwind.
