DIY: DESIGNING A PERENNIAL GARDEN FOR SHADE
The shape and size of this design may not be precisely suitable to your garden. We hope that it can at least be helpful as a point of departure.
An important point must be made straight away. We are speaking of moist shade. The many plants that do so well in shade are seeking moist conditions. If constant moisture is ensured many plants can, in fact, be grown in full sun.The plants in our shade garden design have been chosen for their lovely foliage and varied textures, although with the exception of the ferns, they are all beautifully flowering plants.
Given the relatively short bloom time of most perennials it is always important to look for good foliage and in shade-loving plants this is not hard to find.
