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 medium to light green narrow elongated canoe-shaped foliage, sometimes with a bluish tinge, is often edged with a narrow dark purple to black line and adorns the lax stems from which the flattened, hanging clusters of dark maroon rounded flowers are produced in late spring and summer. Hoya wayetii is an exceptionally easy and rewarding specimen that is well suited to hanging basket culture but can also be enjoyed on a small trellis or other support for the twining to trailing vines. A reliable specimen for those new to Hoya culture that can be enjoyed both as a windowsill plant or a warm season container for shaded porches and patios. Item# 12692

Kanjiro Sasanqua Camellia

Grow it as a container plant, as a hedge, an espalier or even as a small tree form. Large well-established plants of Sambac Jasmine are reported to be root hardy into zone 9 with proper protection and plants are easily overwintered indoors in a warm sunny window as container plants. Provide a full to part sun site in a quality, well-drained, acidic, fertile soil for optimum vigor and flowering. They are tolerant of bright shade but are generally more vigorous and free flowering where they receive at least some direct sunlight. Item# 1002.
