LungwortShade-Tolerant Plants

It’s not the most attractive name for a plant but it is a very beautiful looking plant.

It actually gets its name because long ago people believed it looked like a lung and actually tried to treat lung diseases with it. However, no medicinal powers were found.

This plant is a perennial and one that will take off and run as it grows. It grows in batches so if you aren’t looking for a ground cover type plant then this might not be a good choice.

Creeping Jenny is a perennial that will continue to come back year after year. Depending upon which zone you live in, it actually may stay green year round.

But just keep that in mind when planting this if you aren’t sure you want it to cover your entire shaded area.

HostaShade-Tolerant Plants

We love Hostas. The reason is because they will grow just about anywhere and require basically now work.

So if you have an area that looks like it needs a little attention, place a hosta there. They are perennials and will come back larger and larger each new year.

ImpatiensShade-Tolerant Plants

Most Impatiens are grown as annuals, but they also have a perennial option as well. The kicker with these plants is that most people grow the annual kind of impatiens so they can be enjoyed during the summer. The perennial option only thrives during the winter in the United States.

So if you like beautiful mounding flowers then you’ll probably enjoy having impatience around.
