Who said that the shady corners in the garden can only be covered with grass? The sunny spots in the garden and living area are undisputedly preferred by the most beautiful perennial plants. Nevertheless, there are also those who feel comfortable in the shade, as they thrive better in shady or partially shaded locations. Like most flowers, they like loose soil. The irrigation must be taken into account with the specific location. The garden flowers in the dense shade need less water. The more sunlight the flowers get, especially at noon in summer, the more water they need.
Most garden flowers that like shade are often inconspicuous flowering representatives of the flora. But now see for yourself that many beautiful and profuse blooming garden flowers can grow in the shade.
Some, like Columbine (Aquilegia), foxglove (Digitalis purpurea), and clove root (Geum coccineum), feel perfect in partial shade. They grow well in sunny spots too, but the soil must always be moist. Others, such as elven flowers (Epimedim rubrum), August silver candles (Cimicifuga dahurica), and blue-of-the-valley flowers (Mertensia), thrive best in full shade. For this reason, it is very important that they are protected from direct sunlight for at least half a day.
The attraction of many shade-loving plants, such as hosta, lady’s mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris), bergenia (bergenia) and purple bells (Heuchera), is due to the beauty of their flowers and leaves.
Flowers that are particularly effective in the shady corners are the perennial ornamental plants, such as splendid sparrows (astilbe), golden cobs (Ligularia) and forest goat’s beard (Aruncus dioicus).
