We all have a bit of shade in the garden

but this shouldn't be seen as a problem as there are so many shade tolerant plants available to brighten even the darkest of areas. We've put together a list of some of the most popular shade loving plants to help you on your way to a colourful garden.

Best shrubs for shady gardens

Shade-loving plants are very important to many gardens as they can bring light to darker areas of the garden. Take for example a variegated Hosta, the radiant foliage will enhance the darker area of the garden and brighten it up.

It's good to note how long the area is in the shade for when you are selecting your plants some plants grow in partial shade with just a few hours of sun each day whereas others will grow in almost total shade.
