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.

 

Red Shrimp Plant, False Hope, Shrimp Plant, Shrimp Bush

Justicia brandegeeana, Beloperone guttata, Drejerella guttata, Justicia guttata

The Red Shrimp Plant produces a continuous display of upright to arching spikes composed of large showy maroon bracts from which the individual maroonish-red and white tubular flowers emerge in spring and summer to year round under warm tropical conditions.

Clusters of bright golden yellow upward facing daisies are produced atop sturdy stems emerging from the rosettes of rounded low growing deep green foliage in early(8B) to late spring or early summer(3) depending on your cold hardiness zone. Roundleaf Golden Groundsel, Packera obovata, is very similar to the cutleaf Golden Groundsel, Packera aurea, but is more tolerant of full sun as well as light shade and drier growing conditions. This stoloniferous native perennial develops into an evergreen to semi-evergreen mat of low rich green foliage and its flowers attract many early season pollinators, especially bees. Use Roundleaf Golden Groundsel as a groundcover in informal and naturalistic garden settings as well as in roadside plantings, meadows, and prairies.

Satin Checks Peacock Ginger, Resurrection Lily, Kaempferia

Kaempferia elegans 'Satin Checks', K. laotica 'Satin Checks'

The large oval flat tropical looking rosettes of foliage is heavily checkered with deep burgundy to near black satiny checks that contrast nicely with the rich medium to deep green foliage. Satin Checks Peacock Ginger, Kaempferia elegans 'Satin Checks' and is still commonly offered as a cultivar of K. laotica, is a tropical, low growing, short rhizomatous, herbaceous perennial that naturally goes dormant in fall and returns in mid to late spring. In summer the rosettes may produce 1" wide lavender to purple flowers but the plants are grown mainly as an accent or groundcover that is happy in any average moist, well-drained, fertile soil in shaded sites. Peacock Gingers are often recommended as a Hosta or Plantain Lily replacement in hot summer climates. It can also be enjoyed as an easy and rewarding container specimen or as a ground cover beneath larger plants for a shaded porch or patio. Bring containerized plants indoors prior to the first freeze. Satin Checks Peacock Ginger is reported to tolerate some cool early or very late evening sunlight to filtered sunlight but bright shade is likely optimum for the best looking foliage. Item# 12990

Spikes of spurred, golden yellow, 1/2-3/4" long tubular flowers are produced in late winter and early to midspring at the tips of the stems attracting smaller bees and other pollinators. Smallflower Fumeflower, Corydalis micrantha subsp. australis, is a fall and winter growing, native, spring flowering annual with finely cut deep blue-green foliage adorning the low growing stems. It is found naturally from near central Texas, throughout Louisiana and Arkansas, eastward along the Gulf Coast, and in the coastal counties of North and South Carolina as well as in a few other inland areas in Illinois and Missourri. Smallflower Fumeflower, we grew up knowing as Scrambled Eggs, is typically found in sandy to loamy soils with excellent drainage. It readily reseeds on exposed soils and in disturbed sites. Provide a full sun to partly shaded site in naturalistic areas like roadsides, meadows, and prairies. It would likely make a good companion for spring flowering bulbs like Daffodils and Jonquils and Spanish Bluebells. Item# 12770

2022 Missouri Botanic Garden Plants of Merit selection! 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

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.
