Shade-tolerant Plants.
What flowering plants would you recommend for a small shaded patio? Ideally would like plants that flower and don't need too much care. Thanks!



Hellebores, grasses there'd are many to choose from just simply go down to your local nursery or a gardening website and look up shade tolerant plants you will be surprised at how many they have or come up. Good luck.

Have a look at Goypedia - go to the bottom of any page to the alphabetical index and click on S. You'll find links to 'Shade plants' and Shade container plants'. Lots of ideas there for you.

I'm new to the site and gardening. I'll navigate around the site a bit more :-)

If you google shade loving plants you'll get numerous links, one of the better ones being Long Acre Plants' site.

They only stock such plants and it will have info aswell as pictures for you to see.

I've bought from them a lot and they're very good.
