Add Beauty to the Shade

If you dream of having a beautiful garden but are somewhat apprehensive because you don't have much direct sunlight, shade flowering plants are the perfect choice. Here at Plant Delights Nursery, we offer a multitude of plants that will flourish in partially shaded areas of your yard.

Shade flowering plants will add beauty to the areas of your yard that do not get a lot of sun. What kind of shade do you have? Is there dense shade or does your yard get a few hours of direct sunlight every day? Hosta plants are perennials, which means once planted, they will come back year after year. Most flourish with morning sun and produce wonderful foliage and attractive flowers.

Epimediums 'Fairy Wings' are a perennial as well as a shade flowering plant that blooms in early spring with tiny flowers in an array of colors. They are deer resistant and serve well as a ground cover in the dry, shaded areas of your garden. Another perennial plant that thrives in shade is the Hellebore (Lenten Rose or Christmas Rose). These shade flowering plants bloom in late winter or early spring when most every thing else in your garden is still asleep.

Heucheras (Coral Bells) are another option, as they have leaf colors that range from chartreuse to purple and many colors between! As a butterfly attractor, Heucheras were originally grown for their flowers, which bloom in early summer, but they are now also admired for their cool foliage.

So do not fret if your yard does not get a lot of sun. There are plenty of shade flowering plants that are offered at Plant Delights Nursery. We have a knowledgeable staff and offer the highest quality perennial plants on the market. Best of all, you can purchase your plants online and have them shipped to your house just in time for your planting season. You will definitely stay cooler in the summer while working in the shade and your sunny neighbors will be envious of your beautiful shade garden!
