Woody Perennials for Shady Areas
Friday, February 25
Many gardeners are of the opinion that it is difficult to find perennials that will bloom in shady areas. A traditional plant nursery may not be able to offer a wide variety of flowering shrubs and woody perennials that add color to the shaded landscapes. As a result, many shade gardeners tend to over-depend on foliage plants and groundcovers. However, if you simply take a walk through a natural wooded region, you can observe the wonderful diversity of plants that thrive in the shade, and also produce colorful blossoms.
