    SHADE "Back when I was planning my backyard garden, I got pretty obsessed with finding the prettiest, most uncommon plants for my very shady space beyond the typical ubiquitous choices like hostas, ferns, lily of the valley, and bleeding hearts. All of which I have in my yard and love, by the way. It's just that I also wanted some variety, and some uniqueness in the shade. Here's what I came up with, some of which I've already incorporated, and some of which are still on my to buy/plant list."

Bigroot Geranium One of the toughest plants in the shade garden, bigroot geranium (Geranium macrorrhizum) doesn't mind heat or drought. And, deer and rabbits typically pass it by in search of tastier morsels. This plant puts on a spring show with pink or white flowers; some varieties also offer outstanding fall coloration in their woodsy-scented foliage. Bigroot geranium is hardy in Zones 4-8 and grows 2 feet tall. Top Picks: 'Album' offers white flowers; 'Ingwersen's Variety' offers clear pink flowers; 'Variegatum' has purple-pink flowers and white-variegated leaves

nice foliage shapes, limited palette. Nice use of iris foliage to hide the tulips when they die. gardening, landscaping, flowers

this is a lovely combo. Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’ with Euphorbia amygdaloides ‘Purpurea’ and Hosta ‘Kabitan’ comprise a favorite section in the garden. It has the nicely tailored look in the microcosm in sharp contrast with the fluffiness of the macrocosm.

Good shady plant selection
