Add color and interest to woodland and shade gardens with easy-to-grow, low maintenance perennials. Shade perennials are plants that grow well in full shade (two or less hours of direct sunlight daily) or partial shade (two to six hours of direct sunlight daily). Usually shade perennials tolerate morning light, but aren't fond of direct afternoon sun. Some plants, such as hostas and ferns, are grown primarily for their foliage. These plants add lovely shades of green and texture to the garden. Flowering shade perennials, such as astilbe, primrose and Lily of the Valley, add pops of color. Direct Gardening offers a wide selection of shade perennials for sale. Select your favorites today.
