Gardening in the shade brings a magical dimension of contrasting leaf shapes, colour and textures that shade loving gardeners live for. Beautiful foliage in every colour of green imaginable, unveils itself, in a tranquil and inviting shade garden. Blooming varieties for shade do exist and provide an added element of colour and interest, as do shade plants such as heuchera with their bold leaf shape and dramatic coat of many colours. A shady oasis presents an opportunity to create a natural woodland habitat. With proper site preparation, planning, and perennial plants, your garden will look as though Mother Nature placed it there.
