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.

Buy safe at center Gardens4You

You can buy Shrubs for shady gardens quickly and easily at gardens4you, your online garden center. We have a large range to choose from directly from the nursery.

On all our shrubs for shade you get standard grow and bloom guarantee, if you are not satisfied you get new plants or your money back. So you can order with peace of mind. We have the best quality bushes.

Also take a look at our other bushes. Such as the very popular rhododendron, buxus boxwood and hydrangea.
