Shade Garden Plants

Dark shade doesn’t mean your garden is doomed. We have many options for creating a colorful shade garden. The plants in this category will help turn your shady yard into a peaceful retreat.

There are many different types of shade, evaluate your landscape as best you can to see which areas are deep constant shade, and others that have dappled light, direct sun for a few hours, etc. 

In the descriptions of each plant, we give you tips on what kind of shade it can thrive in. 

Make sure plants will grow in your zone. Check your hardiness zone here.
