What to plant in the shady spots in your yard?

shade collageHere in North Texas we have a lot of mature trees that cast large shadows on our yards, causing what seems to be perpetually sparse and hopeless growing areas. Those tough shady spots in your landscape can be the prime spot for plants with interesting foliage and distinctive color. Foliage plants with large, colorful leaves, work well in both container gardens and beds. Caladiums, coleus, crotons, ferns, and hosta, as well as flowering shade plants like Begonias- bronze leaf, green leaf and dragon wing and crossandra, are a great way to add color and depth to your shady space. Some annuals love shade too, try impatiens to create a whole new look to your garden. Visit us and we will help you combine annuals and perennials to fill your yard or pots with shade loving hues throughout summer.
