Last week I showed you the sun-loving plants that stand up to the heat & drought in my garden. If you missed that post you can read it here. Today I thought I would share some of the shade-loving plants that are surviving these conditions in my garden so far. All of these plants I grow mainly for their attractive foliage even though most of them do get some type of blooms. The Autumn Fern is the only one that doesn’t bloom, but it’s foliage is just as colorful come fall with shades of yellow, orange & red. These all grow in full shade conditions (filtered light only) except for the Calla Lily which is getting morning sunlight. I do have some of this Calla Lily growing in deeper shade conditions and does well there too. In addition I have some of the Lirope and Variegated Solomon’s Seal in a different area of the garden that get more sun and are doing just as well. :)
note: Since I do my posts in advance this was created before we got some much needed rain. Thank goodness!
