Garden Time Online Perennial Garden Plants That Grow In Shade/Part Shade Planted In The Spring

The plants below will thrive in shade or part shade.  There are several varieties of each plant, we have posted our favorites of each here.  Add magnificent colors to that shady spot in your garden, it's easy!  Our shade garden plants are no less than phenomenal.  Your shade garden can be the highlight of your home landscape.  I love my shade garden, it is the favorite spot of my visitors also, they are amazed at the vibrant colors, different textures and green hues of the foliage and oooh and ahhh as they excitedly look around.  It's just gorgeous, it really is!  A shade area is not a problem for a gardener, it's deciding which colors to put in that shade spot that is the problem! You can rely on cyclamen, astilbe, hosta, begonias, impatiens, hellebores, ferns and caladiums to make your shade garden a colorful showcase of blooms.  The living plants for shade below will give you a good idea of what to plant in your shade garden and most are deer resistant too!

My shade garden has different sized terra cotta pots (4"-16")that are arranged on top of an old brick 6' x 6' area that is in front of some bleeding hearts and iris (the bleeding hearts are pink and white and look great behind the purple iris).  Good luck, have fun!
