There is a misconception that shade-loving plants lack color. Youll find loads of color and patterns with plants such as caladiums, New Guinea impatiens and coleus. If you are going to use coleus (the red, variegated leafy plant), give it an occasional trim—this fast-grower can overwhelm its container mates if left unchecked. by kristanluneau

Use Flowering Shrubs        We typically think of perennials such as hostas for shade gardens -- but don't forget about the wide selection of flowering shrubs to pack your shady spots with color, texture, and height. Here, a variety of azaleas and rhododendrons provide a big spring punch, and their evergreen foliage keeps the garden looking good in winter.        Discover more shade-loving shrubs in Plant Encyclopedia. by doreen.m
