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

Hostas, bleeding hearts and ferns. Bottom: Purple Oxalis contrasts yellow Corydalis in both color and texture. Pair oxalis with burgundy tones of Japanese painted fern. Spotted lungwort ties into the silvery fern fronds, and big-leaf Petasites and hostas offers fun contrast with its large leaves.

Good shady plant selection
