Scenes From the Shade Path Garden


Here are some views of our Shade Path garden from the past couple of weeks. I love when it turns to this blue and white phase... so peaceful...

Our new Fothergilla bush is flowering this month, and goes so nicely with the Euphorbia!

Tulip 'White Parrot'...Parrot tulips are known for their unusual markings and shape. It is a nice, frilly addition to the front of the sunny end of this garden that is mostly in shade.

    love your yard...

  • Thanks everyone! Marie- Shade gardens are so much fun to plant... truly. There are so many beautiful, low-maintenance plants for shade these days. Unless you have deer, hosta are probably the easiest thing to start with because they growing in many different types of light, soil and moisture. I hope you give your shade area a try!! I would love to see it!
