Shade Tolerant Plants

Plants for shady sites. These are plants that are either tolerant of shade ranging to those that thrive in shady conditions and may sulk in the heat and intensity of summer sun. Most of these will tolerate a short period of cool sunlight for an hour or two very early in the day or in the very late evening as well as filtered shade (as an amateur photographer I think of the period when light is in the warm yellow tones) and we try to denote that in our descriptions and under the 'Outdoor Light' heading. Sunlight intensity in the northern hemisphere is lower at more northerly latitudes than those that are at more southerly latitudes and are closer to the equator. For example, the French or Mophead Hydrangea generally prefers lower intensity light levels but still need enough sunlight to set buds and flower well. In the north they can be grown as full sun plants whereas in the southern portion of the US they will do best where they receive shade during the hottest portion of the day like on the east side of a structure. Otherwise, even if the soil is moist they are unable to pull moisture up from the root zone through transpiration fast enough to keep the foliage turgid (non-wilting) but are typically soon back to their old self once the light intensity drops enough for them to catch back up.

The arrowhead shaped medium green foliage is decorated with darker purplish green round spots when young then matures to a rich medium green. Soon after leafing back out in spring, African False Hosta, Drimiopsis maculata, produces arching 1" diameter dense rounded spikes of small white buds that mature to green once the flowers open.This is a naturally decidous clump-forming, readily multiplying, semi-hardy tropical bulb that is well suited to shaded conditions and is suprisingly considered hardy in the garden into zone 7B per Tony Avent of Plant Delights. The shade-loving African False Hosta is well suited to container culture where it makes an easy and low-maintenance specimen plant, utilize it in mixed succulent gardens, as a groundcover under larger plants provided it gets sufficient light, as well as in the shaded garden or landscape. Its main requirement is a very well-drained soil. During active growth, average moisture is preferred and it can be allowed to remain a good deal dryer when dormant.

Basket Plant, Chain Plant, Inch Plant

Callisia fragrans, Spironema fragrans  

The rosette-like clusters of glossy, wide, succulent, medium green, tapering foliage resembles a bromeliad in many regards but is actually a close kin of the more common Wandering Jew and Spiderworts. Mature Basket Plant mothers may produce upright to arching branching stems that are adorned with basket-like clusters of dainty, white, fragrant flowers that are likely pollinated by hummingbird and Sphinx moths. New pups are typically produced at the ends of long, spidery trailing arms and can be up to 36" long. This is an easy and rewarding, heirloom plant suitable even for beginners and it can be enjoyed indoors as well as out. The Basket Plant, Callisia fragrans, is a naturally evergreen, tropical perennial with individuals growing to about 6-10"H x 12"W. It can be enjoyed as hanging basket and container specimens and is also used as an easy and low maintenance groundcover in areas with mild winter climates. It is reported to withstand some direct sunlight but the leaves tend to lay down and may take on purple tinging, we personally think it looks the best when grown in light shade or with a short period of cool direct sunlight like very early or very late in the day. Provide a well-drained, average moist soil and allow the soil to become somewhat dry between waterings. Item# 12908
