Shade plants

Cliveas are wonderful shade loving plants.

When choosing plants to grow in the shaded garden we need to know two main points - which plants are able to adapt to our shaded conditions and just what are these conditions. As a general rule the deeper the shade the poorer the flowering performance of your plants. Also, less numbers of plants are available for deep shade. Shady positions may be caused by all sorts of things such as trees, shrubs, walls, fences and buildings. The best shade is bright filtered light such as provided by shade cloth. Areas that are shaded in the morning or afternoon but in sun the rest of the time are often very good for shade adapting plants. Just watch the hot afternoon sun in summer as it may burn foliage.
