Plants for Shade

Crocus has an extensive selection of plants and shrubs suitable for growing in shade.  Almost all gardens have areas of shade where gardeners need to plant shrubs and perennials which either prefer shade or are at least shade tolerant. Illustrated below are some Sunday Gardener's favourites suitable for shade. I have picked out the Hosta collection for their lush foliage. Skimmia Japonica, Geranium macrorrhizum and  the shady pink collection.

To see all the Crocus shade collections, follow this link.

Perennials are the backbone of border planting in the garden. Reliable plants which return every year adding colour and scent. Perennials can be evergreen, semi-evergreen or herbaceous depending on the plant but by definition, they will re grow and flower each year.
