Best Perennials for Shade Gardens... Astilbe: Blooms in early summber in shades of burgundy, red, pink, white, & lavender. Finely-cut foliage - some bronze-tipped. Best in Zones 4-8. Some grow up to 4' tall. Top Picks: 'Deutschland' (pure white flowers); 'Fanal' (dark red blooms- bronzy foliage); 'Sprite' (shell-pink blooms). Plant it with ligularia which also prefers wet soil. Tip: Soil needs to be consistently moist - so its good for areas that don't drain well.

Shade flowering plant: Astilbe
ASTILBE - shade plant Top Picks: 'Deutschland' bears pure white flowers; 'Fanal' offers dark red plums and bronzy foliage; 'Sprite' is an award-winning selection with shell-pink blooms. Plant it with: 'Britt-Marie Crawford' ligularia, which features dramatic purple foliage and golden-orange flowers. It also prefers wet soil.
astilbe is a thriving & beautiful flowering plant for your shade garden. while this pink is pretty, my favorite is white as it really lights up a dark shady spot & contrasts beautifully with the dark green foliage of a shade garden

LANDSCAPE AROUND A SINGLE TREE. This is gorgeous...a tree (just imagine it for a sec w/o the plants at its feet) that has been transformed by a variety of flowering and non-flowering plants, all of which appear to enjoy shade. The brick border, too, creates a defined space, giving it a prominent focus in the yard.

Shade garden (another view): One of the keys to success in this garden is a consistent color scheme. The main plantings are red/burgundy and chartreuse. Chartreuse is the perfect color for shade because it’s bright. The red/burgundy coordinates well with the brick and wood used for the fencing. The generously curved brick edge adds great personality to the design. This flower bed uses a double set of bricks which creates a very cool look.

Garden idea: Use coleus as mass plantings, just as you would annual flowers (shade garden). Colorful foliage: burnt orange, vivid magenta, lime green, deep burgundy & chartreuse.
Coleus for color in mass plantings in flower beds | Growing Coleus: Coleus is a tender perennial that can be grown indoors or outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. I have often read that it is a shade plant, but I have never had them prosper in full shade. I find they much prefer half-shade or afternoon shade.

Get a Room. If you don't want to work on making your entire yard a private paradise, take one corner and transform it into a secluded getaway. A simple way to do this is to carefully place a couple of trees to form a pocket. Here, for example, two pines make a hammock feel tucked away. A redbud just behind the hammock enhances the effort.
