This low-maintenance, foolproof shade garden is attractive in three seasons, but particularly throughout late winter and spring. Witchhazel and astilbe light up the early season with their cheerful blooms. The striking leaves of hosta and Solomon's seal ensure that the garden is attractive even when the flowers aren't in bloom. Shade gardens prefer organic soils, just like Mother Nature's woodland soils. Keep this one moist but well drained for best plant health.
