Some shrubs tolerant of shade include: Carolina allspice, a shrub that not only adds interest with its reddish-purple flowers, but this shrub also emits a pleasant spicy aroma. Viburnum shrubs provide attractive, fragrant blooms and are tolerant of shade. These sweet-smelling, shade-loving shrubs can make excellent understory plantings as well. Rhododendrons and azaleas are probably some of the most popular and best loved of the shade shrubs. They not only thrive in shade but also seem to harmonize with it. Inkberry and hollies also grow well in the shade as does climbing hydrangea. Hope these suggestions help you find just the right plants for your garden.
