The Q&A Archives: Deck plants

Question: I have a shaded, screened in porch, facing south. I just can't seem to get anything but spiderplants to grow - HELP?

Answer: The following plants should do well in light to heavy shade:
Lobelia, impatiens, astilbe, dicentra (bleeding heart), fuchsia, hosta, creeping phlox, columbine, wild ginger, coleus, sweet woodruff. You can find other possibilities by visiting your local nursery and looking specifically for shade-loving plants. Best wishes with your new plants!
