Shade Garden Plans

Under a tree or beside a building: Those tough shady spots in your landscape take planning to plant, but they reward with interesting foliage and distinctive color. Shade-garden plans -- including our surefire layouts -- beautify those spots, as well as take the work and worry out your garden. If you're new to shade, try our beginner's plan. Foliage plants with large, colorful leaves, such as these shade-focused arrangements, work well in both container gardens and garden beds. Take hostas: They are a fantastic way to add color and texture to your garden; our plans offer a wide variety of these shade-loving standbys. Hostas work well with a range of shade-loving perennials such as bleeding heart and hellebore; use our shade-ready plan to add color to a sun-starved spot in your yard. Many annuals love shade, too, and you can create a whole garden with them using our selection of foolproof plants. Some shrubs also do well in shade; combine them with perennials to fill your yard with pretty hues in spring, summer, and fall.
