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.

Five-Veined Dogwood, Xiao Lai Mu

Cornus quinquinervis, C. paucinervis

Clusters of white to yellowish white flowers seemingly cover up the plant in spring and are held against a foil of deep green foliage. Flowers are followed by clusters of black fruit. The Five-Veined Dogwood, Cornus quinquinervis, is an evergreen medium-sized shrub with a spreading upright habit growing about as wide as tall at maturity. This plant is rare in the US at present but is being trialed at SFA Gardens and as JC Ralston Arboretum at present and has shown to be a promising ornamental Dogwood with excellent disease resistance to Dogwood anthracnose. Provide the Five-Veined Dogwood with an average moist soil and full sun to partly shaded site. It is reported to be tolerant of clay and mildly alkaline soils. Item# 12243

Grows To: 6-10'H x 6-8'W
Outdoor Light: Full sun, Part shade, Part sun, Filtered shade

Spikes of soft reddish-orange, fan-shaped flowers are produced from spring to frost, or year round under warm tropical conditions, atop this upright to spreading, naturally evergreen tropical. Florida Flame Crossandra or Firecracker Flower appears to be a hybrid selection with many similarities to the red Nile Queen Crossandra, Crossandra nilotica, but it has a taller, more vigorous, somewhat more upright habit with glossy very dark green foliage. *In areas with hot summer climates Crossandras generally tend to prefer cool sunlight, like filtered or morning sun, or very late afternoon sunlight. In cooler climates they can tolerate full sun. Use Crossandras as specimen container plants, in mixed container gardens as well as in the garden and landscape. The flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Easy, vigorous and floriferous enough to use as a summer annual but can be grown as perennials in tropical climates. They can also be overwintered as container plants where not hardy. Item# 12835

USDA Cold Hardiness Zones: 10,11,(9? with protection)

Elegantly arching, 4-8" long spikes of 1" wide, bell-shaped, fragrant white flowers with contrasting yellow anthers are produced in spring to early summer with the warmest regions flowering earliest. The Fragrant Snowbell, Styrax obassia or S. obassis, is a highly desirable, showy small tree that is initially pyramidal in form but broadens and becomes rounded with age. The large papery, rounded to oval to near heart-shaped foliage can reach 8" long and the beautiful foliage alone makes this plant worth growing. From the moist forests of Japan and Korea, the Fragrant Snowbell will benefit from protection from strong drying winds as well as a moist to average moist, loamy, well-drained acidic soil that is rich in organic matter and an organic mulch over the root zone. Full sun to part shade tolerant but it may benefit from afternoon shade in hot summer climates. Item# 12607

Franklinia, Franklin Tree

Franklinia alatamaha

Fragrant 3" wide white flowers with a boss of bright egg-yolk yellow stamens are produced beginning in midsummer and may continue until first frost under good conditions. The rare and highly sought after Franklinia or Franklin Tree, Franklinia alatamaha, is now extinct in the wilds of Georgia where it was initially discovered growing in the Altamaha River Valley. This is a small, rounded, deciduous, single trunked tree to multi-trunked large shrub in the Camellia or Tea family, Theaceae. It can be notoriously difficult to establish and requires excellent conditions in an acidic, loamy soil rich in organic matter with average moist to moist conditions and is not tolerant of drought. An organic mulch over the root zone will be beneficial to the tree's health, establishment, and longevity. Afternoon shade is beneficial, especially in hot summer climates. Item# 12603

Golden Dragon™ Japanese Plum Yew, Cow-Tail Pine

Cephalotaxus harringtoniana 'Golden Dragon', C. harringtonii

A new twist on a popular old favorite, the Golden Dragon™ Plum Yew, a selection of Cephalotaxus harringtoniana, is a tough and easy, low maintenace, small evergreen shrub with a dense compact habit and a soft texture slowly growing to about 3-4' high and wide. It can be used as both low maintenance container specimens as well as in the garden and landscape where its brilliant foliage will create a wonderful contrast with its neighbors. *The Plum Yews can tolerate full sun in areas with cooler summer temperatures but may be best where they receive some midday and/or afternoon shade in hot summer climates. They are deer resistant and are shade tolerant but Golden Dragon™ will have the brightest foliage coloration where it receives at least some direct sunlight, preferably about 4 hours or more.

The fine dark green linear foliage is tipped with a slightly larger rounded pad and adorns fine trailing to twining stems. The Grass-Leaved Hoya, Hoya retusa, produces white waxy flowers that are centered by a nicely contrasting deep burgundy 'eye' in spring and on and off during the growing season on mature plants. The flowers are born singly and in small clusters. This unusual Hoya hails from India and its fine stems lend it to use as a hanging basket specimen, allow it to spill from containers like the 'head' pots as wild looking hair, and it can be used as a groundcover below larger plants that require similar conditions as long as there is ample bright light to keep it growing and healthy. Like most Hoyas, allow the soil to become semi-dry between waterings although this species can tolerate a little more moisture than most. Item# 12294

Hanging clusters of buttery yellow fragrant flowers that are centered by a purple to burgundy star-shaped corona are produced during the warmer months of the year. Hoya cumingiana, or Paluki in its native Phillipines, is somewhat of a sprawling shrub-like Hoya with closely stacked small rounded glossy medium green foliage that may be at its best when trained to a support like a small trellis. Its foliage is nice enough that it could be grown for its architectural form with the flowers simply as a bonus. This is considered to be one of the easier to grow shrub-like Hoyas that mainly needs to be allowed to dry out somewhat between waterings. The fragrant flowers are likely to draw butterflies and other pollinators. Its ease of growth, unusual looking foliage, and fragrant flowers make this Hoya one of the more sought after species.
