Last week, I wrote about my shady garden area that I am trying to design and needing to find plants for. So I have done a little research and here are a few cool plants that grow well in the shade. The first, shown above is the Lungwort that I found in an article on living the country life, top ten shade plants. I really like the purple flowers this plant produces.
Better Homes & Gardens recommends Hostas as one of their “Best Perennials for Shade” . I really think these look cool in multiple varieties as seen in this photo above.
The heucheras are a cool colorful plant that have been bred to produce an almost rainbow variety of leaves. These would be really cool against the bottom of my fence.
And I love this last one the “Oregonian” with its cool maroon colored blooms. I still need to read a lot on if our climate could actually host these plants but they are really vibrant and I am glad I found them.
