Shade Plants

This collection of part and full shade plants is perfect for the cool, shady spots in your garden. Most of our part-shade perennials prefer morning sun and afternoon shade. If you have morning shade and 6+ hours of afternoon sun, choose a full sun plant. Many of our shade loving perennials are drought resistant/drought tolerant plants (xeric) and also suited for high altitude gardening. Learn more about gardening in the shade by reading Plants For Shade And Part Shade. View only plants for full shade.
