White Bell flowers plant

In every garden there are varying degrees of shade. There is the deep shade where serious woodland-type plants are the only thing that will grow. And then there is partial shade. Bliss: you can grow plants with flowers that will give colour and delight in those dark corners. Be careful: you do need a few hours of sunlight, but nothing like direct, full sun over the day.

Here are some of the nicest partial-shade perennials. They spread rapidly, so you may have to do some serious ripping out after a few years.

1. Bee Balm (Monarda Didyma)

Bee balm, as the name hints, is heaven for the bees and hummingbirds. And the gardener: it comes in different shades of red and purple, it blooms in partial shade for weeks in July. If you cut it back, you may even get a second set of blooms in September. It spreads like crazy.

2. Gooseneck Loosestrife (Lysimachia Clethroides)

This is another one that spreads like mad and that the bees and bugs love. It is not the bad loosestrife that you are not supposed to plant. Blooming in July, it has a spike of lovely white flowers on a bent stalk (like a goose's neck).

3. Lamium (Lamium maculatum)

Lamium is a great ground cover that needs very little light. Depending on the kind you choose, it has sweet purple or white or pink flowers in the early spring. It will hide a multitude of sins, and ugly places, since it just keeps on going in dry partial shade. The leaves are variegated so add some colour and the flowers are pretty too.

4. Sweet Woodruff (Gallium Ordoratum)

Here's another ground cover that flourishes in the shade, is easily established and will take off. It has nice dark green leaves that catch the light. In early spring it has little white star-shaped flowers that compliment other early spring plantings.

Flowering Maple/Chinese Bell Flower/Lantern/

2006-10-30 15:04:12 by luvplants

Also known as Abuliton. It grows in light shade (it can be grown indoors) and can be kept as a shrub. It's available right now and is beginning to flower right now. I have one along a North wall, next to a hydrangea, azealea, impatients, coleus (don't plant coleus right now, because it will begin to die back soon), baby tears and moss seem to like to grow.--- It attracts bees, hummingbirds and butterflies. Hydrangea does well in shade, but isn't a butterfly magnet, although I have seen some on there. Abulition has pretty maple-like leaves, and dainty flowers and is available in pink, red, white, and orange
