Answer: With shade gardens, foliage is often a good way to achieve an interesting look with texture and color interest. Hostas offer a huge variety (both in color and texture as well as size and shape) as do ferns. For flowering display with interesting foliage you might also consider lamium, dicentra, tiarella, pulmonaria, tricyrtis, astilbe and native wildflowers such as Jacob's ladder and Virginia bluebells. Finally, add some colorful all season bloom and color with annuals such as impatiens, tuberous begonias, and caladiums. Enjoy your shade garden!
