Certain plants need some sun to bloom but not too much! If you’re gardening in a yard that escapes the afternoon sun, you’ve got some great options. The Bloom-a-thon Azalea is a newer variety of Azalea that blooms in the spring and again in the fall. Make sure you plant them a little high and add a lot of peat moss to the soil. Love the look of Hydrangeas? Try a re-bloomer like Endless Summer, or the colorful Cityline Paris Hydrangeas. For evergreens, we suggest the Mountain Fire Pieris Japonica. It blooms delicate white flowers in the spring and bright red in the leaves of new growth.
All Plants Are Available on a Seasonal Basis
Lovely clusters of bright yellow flowers with red throats bloom from spring into summer over trailing bright golden-green foliage. Makes an excellent groundcover and provides a lovely accent to baskets, containers or window boxes.
Hostas are hardy perennials that are especially perfect for a garden that doesn’t get too much sun. Reliable and easy to grow, hostas are long-lived—and may even outlive the gardener! Plant in the spring and cut back in the fall after a few frosts.
