Do you have one of “those” areas? Spots that are too hot and bright for most shade-loving plants, but without enough hours of direct sun for top foliage and flower color? Try some of these solutions for those challenging sites:
Trees and Shrubs
Yellow, white or variegated foliage plants including conifers and green or variegated Japanese holly.
Sun-tolerant shade plants like kerria, yew, pieris, and oak-leaf hydrangea.
Shade-tolerant but Sun-loving shrubs like hebe, distylium, holly, viburnums, and boxwood.
Highly adaptable sun-or-shade loving daylily, lady’s mantle, and anemone.
Sun-tolerant shade plants such as coral bells, fuchsias, and bergenia; also most spring-flowering bulbs.
