We specialize in shrubs, so here's our collection of shrubs for shade gardens. Since we have a smattering of perennials and trees, we've included them on this page too.
Plant in the shade or plant in the sun? One of the first decisions to make after a new plant has grabbed your attention.
We have filtering options on the left side of every collection page, but our goal is that this page dedicated to shrubs for shade helps you get one step closer to finding the right shrubs for your shady garden.
Many of these shade plants can transition to partial shade or even full sun in some cases. Please read the complete plant descriptions.
Do you need help figuring out what type of shade you have? We've written about shade on our general blog, so follow that underlined link.
We have a lot of hydrangeas in our midst, so we've kept them in their own dedicated area. All these hydrangeas, except for the panicle hydrangeas, are full or partial shade shrubs.
