When choosing shade plants, make sure you consider the season they will thrive in. Coleus is an excellent choice for the northern hemisphere, as it boasts vibrant foliage colors. In the summer, the small coleus flowers bloom. If you're a beginner gardener, consider planting bleeding heart bushes. These flowers are low-maintenance and fill your yard with romantic hues. They are an excellent choice for winter gardens that get little sunlight.
A plant that thrives in partial shade will grow in your shaded garden and look beautiful at the same time. You can choose a miniature version if you'd prefer. It will require low maintenance and fill your garden with beautiful romantic colors. You can also try coleus, also known as the leopard plant. These plants are best grown in the shade, but they can grow well in a sunny area.
Shade Plant - Aster
Aster plants are excellent for shade gardens and provide late-season color; they are also good pollinator plants. Some varieties have bushy habits and are excellent for naturalistic landscape masses. You should read Meg Ryan's article, "Tips and Tricks for Growing Asters in Your Shade Garden."
They will require two to three years to mature fully, but they are well worth the effort. Once you've established the plant, it can be divided to make more plants. The best time to divide asters is spring after they've finished flowering. That allows the foliage to naturally yellow and will encourage more flowers to grow in the spring.
Ajua Plant - Shade Plant With Drought Tolerance
Ajuga is a shade plant with drought tolerance. Ajuga plants need moist soil but are tolerant of drought conditions and can survive without much water. However, during dry periods, they may require additional watering. Ajugas don't need fertilizer, so they are an excellent companion plant. Ajuga can tolerate full sun or partial shade and low light levels. The Ajuga can survive in containers, pots, and the ground.
The Ajuga plant is low maintenance once established. Once established, it can self-sustain itself with average rainfall. In some sunny areas, it may need more frequent watering. Runners are easy to redirect and can be cut and replanted. The Ajua plant may need to be divided every few years to avoid overcrowding and crown rot. If you have a large garden, it's best to divide your ajuga plants to prevent crown rot.
Ajuga has foliage that comes in many colors. The leaves of an Ajuga are dark burgundy or purple with pink edges. Their glossy, crinkled leaves are often covered in clusters of bright blossoms in the summer. They are a low-maintenance plant that tolerates both full sun and full shade. You can also choose miniature ajuga varieties through gardens.
