Perennials for Shade from Shady Grove Gardens & Nursery

As we are gearing up for a great spring and summer I'm thinking about all my fellow gardeners that have a lot of shade. Shade is good. We all love trees, but it is a bit hard to work with them if you are used to the traditional suburban lawn with sun and lots of color.

The first thing to remember is nature is much more subtle in the shade of the Appalachians. With an eye for texture and delicate beauty you can have a beautiful garden. Wildflowers are often used as they fit in best. They feed the birds and butterflies. You can also slip in a few non-invasive non-natives to round-out the seasonal garden.

Plan to have a shade garden with lots of greens and textures.
