Great flowers for shady corners in your garden

Great flowers for shady corners in your garden

Who says the shady corners in the garden can only be covered with grass? Undeniably, the sunny spots in the garden and living area are favored by the most beautiful perennial plants. Nevertheless, there are also those who feel well in the shade, as they thrive better in shady or partially shaded locations. Like most flowers, they like loose soil. The irrigation must be considered with the specific location. The garden flowers in the dense shade need less water. The more sunlight the flowers get, especially at noon in the summer, the more water they need.

Some, like Columbine (Aquilegia), Digitalis purpurea and Clovecum (Geum coccineum), feel perfectly in partial shade. They grow well even in sunny spots, but the soil must always be moist. Others, such as elm flowers (Epimedim rubrum), August silver candle (Cimicifuga dahurica) and blue calyx (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 the Hostia, the Alaskan (Alchemilla vulgaris), the Bergenia (Bergenia) and the Purple Bell (Heuchera) is due to the beauty of their flowers and leaves.
