Trying to turn a yard that is completely shaded into a bright colorful landscape seems difficult, but with the right plants it can be done!

A shade garden is a garden that is planted and grown in areas with little or no direct sunlight. Finding plants that are shade tolerant is a must. Certain types of annuals and perennials are the best flowers for shade and add beautiful color to any yard. Certain trees and shrubs also thrive in shade and will compliment your flowers.
