A side yard is often a good spot for a shade garden, especially if there are trees or the house casts a shadow. Line a walkway with a border of shade-loving plants for a charming look.

Power Perennials: Plants that Thrive No Matter What / Coneflower Once found growing wild on the American prairie, coneflowers now most widely grown and hybridized perennials in the country. Beside single-flowering forms there are also doubles and even triple, petal-packed varieties you can grow. Colors vary from the traditional purple to white, orange, yellow, and red. Grow best in full sun, but will tolerate some light shade. Bloom early summer to fall and attractive to birds & butterflies
Coneflower-Daylily Practically indestructible, daylilies will flower their heads off in almost any sunny spot. They are drought and insect resistant and offer a wide range of colors and bicolors. Daylilies are also available in early-, mid-, and late-season bloomers. For an all-season flower show plant a few of each in your garden. Or, select repeat bloomers that flower from spring until fall. These easy-care perennials eventually form large clumps that should be divided every three to four years. Grows in Zones 3-9. Learn more about daylily in our Plant Encyclopedia. Video: More tips for growing lilies and daylilies in your garden. Buddleia Buddleia, commonly called butterfly bush, produces wave after wave of fragrant, nectar-rich flowers all summer long. A flowering shrub, Buddleia acts like a perennial in northern gardens, dying back to the ground each fall, only to return bigger and better the following spring. Buddleia is available in standard (3 to 5 feet tall) and dwarf forms (18 to 24 inches tall). Flower colors include white, red, purple, blue, yellow, pink, and lavender. They look terrific in the flower border or in containers. Just make sure to plant them in a sunny spot. Grows in Zones 5-10. Get even more information on buddelia in our Plant Encyclopedia. Epimedium One of the best perennials for shady spots, Epimedium, commonly called barrenwort, is a real garden workhorse. Growing only 10 to 12 inches tall, this hardy groundcover offers both colorful foliage and flowers. It’s also highly drought resistant which makes it an ideal choice for shady locations with dry soil. Depending on the variety you grow and your region, the plants may also remain evergreen through the winter. Epimedium spreads slowly, gradually carpeting your garden with color. Grows in Zones 4-8. Learn how to grow and care for barrenwort in our Plant Encyclopedia. Coreopsis Hot, dry weather won’t stop Coreopsis from flowering all summer long. This American native is one of the most reliable perennials you can grow. The plants produce large quantities of yellow, orange, pink, white, red, or bicolored blooms that dance on wiry stems every time the wind blows. They also have few insect or disease problems. Foliage varies between species and can be either threadlike or broad. To promote even more flowers, remove faded blooms as they appear. Grows in Zones 3-8. Get detailed growing information on coreopsis in our Plant Encyclopedia. Russian Sage Add a burst of color to your late summer and fall garden with Russian sage, Perovskia atriplicifolia. This tough-as nails plant is native to central Asia, so it’s capable of performing in hot, dry conditions. Its eye-popping bluish-purple flowers appear in mid to late summer and retain their color for weeks. Paired with the plant’s fragrant, silvery foliage, Russian sage is a must-have for your garden. Russian sage grows 3 to 5 feet tall, dwarf forms are more compact reaching 3 feet in height. Grows in Zones 4-9. Learn how to grow and care for Russian sage in our Plant Encyclopedia. Hellebore Just when you think winter is never going to end, the spirit-lifting flowers of hellebore burst into bloom. Often called Lenten or Christmas rose because of their early-flowering season, hellebore excels in the shade garden where its nodding pink, white, rose, green, purple, yellow, spotted, or bicolored blooms bring welcome color to dark corners of the landscape. They also make great companions for spring-flowering bulbs such as Narcissus and Scilla. Hellebores are also deer and rabbit resistant. Grows in Zones 4-9. Get detailed growing information for hellebore in our Plant Encyclopedia. Sedum Put sedums on the top of your shopping list if you’re looking for a perennial that requires almost no care. These scrappy plants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors and won’t knuckle under to heat, drought, winter cold, or insects. One of our favorites is a variety called Dragon’s Blood sedum. This fast-growing creeper has pretty red-and-green foliage, making it an excellent groundcover for sloping sites. Sedums prefer sunny locations, but they will also grow well in partial shade. Grows in Zones 3-10. Learn the benefits of growing sedum. Baptisia Once established, Baptisia, occasionally called false indigo, can live for decades. In fact, in the Better Homes and Gardens Test Garden we have several specimens that have bloomed reliably every spring since they were planted in the 1950s. Baptisia is a shrub-like perennial that develops graceful stalks of blue, white, purple, or yellow flowers in the early spring. It has pretty, blue-green, pea-like foliage that looks terrific even when the plants are not in bloom. Baptisia requires a sunny spot and grows 3 to 4 feet tall. Grows in Zones 3-8. Get more facts on baptisia in our Plant Encyclopedia. Coneflower Once found growing wild on the American prairie, coneflowers are now one of the most widely grown and hybridized perennials in the country. Beside single-flowering forms there are also doubles and even triple, petal-packed varieties you can grow. Colors vary from the traditional purple to white, orange, yellow, and red. Coneflowers grow best in full sun, but will tolerate some light shade. They bloom from early summer to fall and are attractive to birds and butterflies. Grows in Zones 3-9.

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.
