    SHADE: Summersweet We like summersweet because it blooms in shady spots. We also love that its pink or white flowers have a wonderful fragrance. Add its golden fall leaf color and you have an ideal shrub. Note: Look for cultivars, such as Ruby Spice, that offer an extra-long bloom season. Name: Clethra alnifolia Growing Conditions: Part to full shade and moist soil Size: To 5 feet tall Zones: 3-9

Hydrangea paniculata is the easiest hydrangea to grow. In late summer and autumn, this rugged shrub produces fluffy clusters of white flowers that fade to shades of pink and green. Many cultivars, such as 'Tardiva', can be successfully trained into a standard, or miniature tree form -- perfect for a large container or just about any landscape spot.
