Welcome to my Shade Garden here in Kentucky.
The April rains have certainly benefited the plants in my shade garden. We needed those April showers to bring the May flowers and plant growth. In the pic below, there are hostas, hardy ferns, and a Spiderwort Plant (the plant with the purple blooms).
The hostas come in many sizes and different shades of green in my garden.
The heucheras (coral bells) have become a favorite for me in the shade garden.
Sweet tea is one of my newest heucheras.
Astilbe plants are gorgeous in shade garden. They are perfect for brightening up a shade garden and have plume-like flowers. I believe this one is the "White Diamond" astilbe. The plumes will last for several weeks. More plumes will open in a few days.
The autumn ferns were added to my shade garden in 2016 when this garden came into existence. They die back during the winter but return in the spring with bronze color fronds. As the summer progresses the fronds turn green.
Hardy ferns were added two years in a row. Now new ones pop up each year. I am so careful not to step on the young ferns coming up in the garden.
You can see my love of shade gardening. Do you like shade gardens?
Here is a short video of part of my shade garden.
