Shade Perennials

HOURS | Monday thru Saturday: 7AM-6PM | Always Closed Sunday
Do you have a shady oasis in your yard, but struggle to grow plants such as Coneflowers and Daylilies? You might need to try Shade Perennials!

Shade Perennials are plants that prefer 4 or less hours (but some can handle 6 or less) of direct sunlight. Preferably morning sun or dappled sun. Be wary of planting certain Shade Perennials in hot afternoon sun! For example, you can plant some varieties of Heuchera in 4-6 hours of morning sun, but not all.

If you aren't sure what kind of plant you need, ask us! As we like to say, "When in doubt, find out!" Our Perennial Department team is more than happy to help you pick out the proper plants for all areas of your yard. 

Check out our full Shade Perennial List below. PS: Hosta's have their own page.
