What can you do with that part of the yard or garden that may have a few trees, a partially shaded garden bed, or a tall building that blocks the full sun for a good part of the day? That in-the-middle area that’s not quite in the sun but not quite in the shade may seem tricky, but those dappled landscaping areas are where part-shade perennials thrive.
You’ll find a vibrant selection of partial shade perennials for sale right here at Nature Hills Nursery, all ready to perk up places where few other plants can go.
Some of the best-known sun-loving perennials can also handle their fair share of shade. Purple coneflowers are some of the most popular perennials that can live in part shade, and they can be joined by daylilies and even Tuscan Sun sunflowers in the dappled light.
You can also approach the solution from the other angle by looking at typically shade-loving perennials that can take a bit of sun. Partial shade plants here can include Hosta and Astilbe, two shady garden mainstays that have even more versatility than one would think.
