Native Plants for the Shade
Don’t let a little shade stop you from going native. A look at nearby shady natural areas and many of the new garden catalogues will provide lots of ideas.
Shrubs like viburnum, hydrangea and Diervilla add color with flowers and fruit. Cool Splash is a cultivar of the native Diervilla that brightens up the shade with its white variegated leaves.
A bit more information: Don’t add additional soil underneath and plant with care when working under and around established trees. Do mulch new plantings and water as needed.
