Just a few years ago, the words “shade garden” brought to mind hostas, ferns, impatiens and maybe some astilbe’s. Shade gardens were viewed as a fine place to rest while on a garden bench, but not nearly as exciting as a sunny border.

Best perennials for Shade

Join the Green People at our Riverport Road location this Saturday at 10AM as we explore the wonderful world of shade perennials. Come save with our hosta sale and make your shade garden the best in town.

Flowers for shade are still more limited than those for sun-especially now that impatiens no longer thrive in many areas due to a fast-spreading fatal disease. But foliage colors and textures have exploded. And, oh, the possibilities! Today we can spice up our shade gardens with bright lime, orange, pink, red, burgundy, purple, chocolate, near-black and every shade in between. Foliage plants are no longer considered accents: They are the foundation and the “flowers.”

Playing with color is the new trend for gardening with full shade plants.
