Shade Perennials

A garden comprised only of Hostas can be a beautiful sight. No doubt, Hostas offer a wide range of colors, sizes, and textures to suit most any need. Yet, it seems such a shame to ignore the tremendous variety of intriguing perennials that can thrive in the shade garden right along side of Hostas. Many shade tolerant perennials can be nestled among the Hostas to conserve valuable garden space, while others can be used as a natural, flowing ground cover between and under specimen plants. Regardless of how they are used, shade perennials bring welcome splashes of color, texture, and height to the tranquil shade garden.

This represents only a portion of the shade perennials we offer. A wider selection is available at the nursery.
