Shade tolerant plants provide a much needed service to many urban landscapes. They will grow in places where grass and other plants will not. Many of the plants here are perennial, so they come back every year as long as the soil remains rich and healthy. They grow well along fence lines, or in large containers. Beautiful and interesting foliage is what these plants are mainly known for. Many of them bloom as well, and some even produce berries. Shade tolerant plants come in many shapes and sizes, so there is something for every garden. Contact us for more info, or if you are looking for something not listed below.
It is important to find plants that will work in both your hardiness zone, as well as your shady corner. Some plants are more shade tolerant than others, and they will have different water, soil and nutrient requirements. Take the time to talk to a professional at your local greenhouse. They will be able to help out greatly to get what will work the best.
