Are there any shade-loving plants that make good cut flowers?
"I'd like to start a cut-flower border, but my yard is quite shady. Are there any shade-loving plants that make good cut flowers?"

Unfortunately, few shade-loving plants produce good cut flowers. The best types include astilbe, masterwort (Astrantia major), monkshood (Aconitum), coral bells (Heuchera), and cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis). If your garden receives some direct sun, you might be able to grow more traditional cut flowers, such as gerbera daisy (Gerbera), lilies (Lilium), or blazing star (Liatris). However, when grown in the shade, these plants won't provide as much show as they would if grown in the sun.
