Plants for Shade

These plants do well in shaded environments. Some prefer dappled or part shade, some can tolerate full shade. Full shade means less than three hours of direct sun per day. Plants for full shade can grow under dense trees or on the north side of buildings where they get almost no direct sun. Plants for part shade need between 3 and 6 hours of direct sun or dappled sun. Select plants for your soil type - some need rich forest loam, some do fine in dry sandy loam or under pines.
