The Q&A Archives: What flowering perrenials do well in the shade?

Question: What kind of showy, flowery, perrenials do good in an area that is shaded most of the day?

Answer: Some flowering perennials for shade would include Pulmonaria, Tricyrtis, Tiarella, Dicentra and Helleborus. Many hostas have very showy foliage in different sizes, textures, shapes and colorings. Ferns can also add a textural interest for more visual appeal. If you want all season color you might add some of the annual impatiens for continuous flowers. I hope this gives you some ideas.
