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.

 

Clusters of dangling, 6-8" long, spike-like clusters of small urn-shaped white flowers are produced at the ends of the branches in spring and may be followed by showy yellow seed capsules that remain even into winter. The flowers are highly prized by native bees and by apiarists for producing Sourwood honey. The Sourwood, Oxydendrum arboreum, is a beautiful, deciduous, medium to large tree adorned with glossy green foliage that becomes deep fiery red in fall if grown in sunny conditions. It has a naturally pyramidal habit, especially when younger, and generally grows 20-40' high but may reach 70' under ideal conditions. The Sourwood is commonly found with wild azaleas, rhododendrons, Pawpaws and other acid loving species ranging from central Louisiana to southwestern Pennsylvania. It needs an acidic, loamy, well-drained, moist to average moist soil rich in organic matter and will likely benefit from an organic mulch applied over the root zone. The foliage has an acidic flavor giving the tree its name. Item# 12606

Splish Splash Mottled Red Bird Cactus, Jacobs Ladder, Red Slippers Spurge, Devil's Backbone, Jacob's Ladder

The Splish Splash or Mottled Red Bird Cactus is an easy to grow highly decorative form of this heirloom and Florida native plant that has an easy and forgiving disposition creating fantastic, architecturally pleasing specimens. A shrub-like native of tropical forests of southern Florida and as far south as Central America, it makes an easy porch or patio plant where it partial shade to bright shade but can also be enjoyed as an easy indoor plant.  Allow the soil to become somewhat dry between waterings although it can tolerant more moisture when in active growth and less during winter. Item# 12608

The large, rounded to heart-shaped, deep green glossy foliage is deeply cut, with most splits nearing the main vein of the leaf, and individual leaves can easily reach 12-24" or more across. The Split-Leaf Philodendron, not a Philodendron but in fact Monstera deliciosa, is a popular and relatively easy medium to large house or patio plant that is actually a vigorous tropical evergreen vine that can potentially attain heights of 70' in its native habitat but is more commonly maintained as a 3-5'H container plant. It can be trained to any untreated, sturdy wooden support where its adventitious roots will firmly attach the stem to its support. Mature plants may produce male and female flowers, a spadix which is typical of Araceae, but is uncommonly produced under typical cultivation. The Monstera is easy and adaptable but will perform best where it receives bright indirect light and it can even tolerate some cool direct sunlight as well as filtered shade. Provide an average moist, fertile, well-drained soil for optimum vigor. Item# 12707

Grows To: 3-4'H x 3-5'W as a container plant, potentially reaching 30'H+ in warm tropical conditions

The ovate, pointed, succulent, blue-green to gray-green foliage is adorned with fine streak-like veins reminiscent of a watermelon rind and may also be coated in a white bloom. Like the String of Pearls, this easy to grow succulent has a clear, slit-like "epidermal window" that allows light to enter the internal part of the leaf. The String of Watermelons, Senecio herreanus, is a tropical, trailing succulent whose thin trailing stems can reach 12 or more inches long. During the warmer months of the year it produces small, ray-less white flowers enjoyed by bees and other small pollinators. Provide a sharply draining, cactus-like soil allowing it to become moderately dry between waterings although they can tolerate slightly more water during the growing season. The String of Watermelons makes an easy windowsill plant, hanging basket specimen, and table top decoration or use it in one of the head pots for an interesting specimen plant. Provide high or bright indirect light outdoors but they can also tolerate some cool direct sunlight indoors. Item# 12675

Clusters of dangling, 6-8" long, spike-like clusters of small urn-shaped white flowers are produced at the ends of the branches in spring and may be followed by showy yellow seed capsules that remain even into winter. The flowers are highly prized by native bees and by apiarists for producing Sourwood honey. The Sourwood, Oxydendrum arboreum, is a beautiful, deciduous, medium to large tree adorned with glossy green foliage that becomes deep fiery red in fall if grown in sunny conditions. It has a naturally pyramidal habit, especially when younger, and generally grows 20-40' high but may reach 70' under ideal conditions. The Sourwood is commonly found with wild azaleas, rhododendrons, Pawpaws and other acid loving species ranging from central Louisiana to southwestern Pennsylvania. It needs an acidic, loamy, well-drained, moist to average moist soil rich in organic matter and will likely benefit from an organic mulch applied over the root zone. The foliage has an acidic flavor giving the tree its name. Item# 12606
