Which perennials thrive in the shade? The options are surprising in their variety! Here are a few of our favorites:
Hostas are a popular choice for shade gardens, with their large, textured leaves in shades of green, blue, or variegated patterns. They produce spikes of white or lavender flowers in summer.
Astilbe produce feathery plumes of pink, white, or red flowers in early to mid-summer, and offer up attractive foliage in shades of green, bronze, or burgundy.
Ferns are a classic choice for shade gardens, with their delicate fronds and graceful, arching forms. They come in a range of sizes and shapes, from small and delicate to large and dramatic.
Old-fashioned Bleeding Hearts produce heart-shaped flowers in shades of pink or white, dangling from arching stems in spring and early summer.
Coral bells have attractive foliage in shades of green, purple, or burgundy, and produce small, bell-shaped flowers on tall stems in summer.
