Shade loving plants

Shade loving plants can adda surprising amount of colour and interest in your garden. Shady parts of yoru garden can be hard to manage and getting the right plant for the right place is essential.

Poor light and insufficient water and nutrients are typical of shady area. So make sure you know what the conditions are like before you plants in these locations.

What do you want colour or foliage? It’s important to distinguish this as it will effect what you plants. Evergreen plants do well in the shade and can grow quite big. Laurel will grow well in the shade and can form a large hedge if left. Similarly hydrangeas like the shade and will provide huge colourful blooms as well.

Also perennials like the shade and provide good ground cover. Hellebores  and Heuchera all grow well in shady areas and give good flower colour.
