Made to be Displayed in the Shade

Gardening in the shade can be a challenge, especially when trying to grow flowering plants. But don't give up! The shade-loving perennials in the new Breck's® Shade Designer Garden will let you have both a cool, shady yard and beautiful flowers for years to come.

The star of any shade garden, and one that thrives in full shade, is the hosta. While most, including this collection's Elegans Hosta, have striking, trumpetlike flowers, gardeners usually grow hostas for their gorgeous foliage.

If you are planting a woodland garden, you will receive such natural woodland plants as ferns and lilies-of-thevalley, both of which create a dense ground cover.

Plant them as shown in the diagram included with your order to get a lovely flower garden without giving up your shade!

The varieties in this collection cover an area of approximately 72 square feet (6' x 12').

This garden is suitable for hardiness zones 4–8. It should be planted in well-drained soil where it will receive part to full shade.

Lily-of-the-Valley: Its clusters of tiny, white bells add charm and fragrance to every spring garden setting. Thrives in shade, spreading rapidly to create carpets of emerald foliage. Excellent under trees and in foundation beds, borders and banks.Convallaria majalis
Size: #1 Root
Height: 6–8"
Bloom Time: Mid to Late Spring

Foxglove Mixture: Its tubular flowers are favourites of nectarseeking hummingbirds and butterflies. This mix of colourful blooms will open in onesided racemes atop tall, leafy spires. Leave faded flowers in place, and they will self-sow to provide new foxgloves next year.Digitalis
Size: #1 Plant
Height: 4–5'
Bloom Time: Late Spring to Early Summer

Elegans Hosta:A large hosta with thick, well-veined, smokyblue leaves that grow in clumps. Its racemes of funnel-shaped blooms are mostly white but are sometimes tinged with lilac at the base. The flower clusters grow atop scapes that rise well above the foliage.Hosta sieboldiana
Size: 2–3 Eye Root
Height: 20–24"
Bloom Time: Early to Mid Summer

Red Fanal Astilbe:An absolute must for any astilbe planting. Scarlet-red plumes will truly stand out in your flower garden with their deep, rich colour. Each contains hundreds of florets that create eye-popping beauty wherever they are grown.
Size: 1–2 Eye Root
Height: 20"
Bloom Time: Late Spring to Early Summer

Reblooming Pink Bleeding Heart:Produces pink, heart-shaped flowers with an extended blooming season and lovely fernlike foliage in a compact growth habit. Flowering may continue all summer in cooler climates. Blooming tends to pause in hot weather and then resume in late summer or early fall.Dicentra eximinia
Size: #1 Plant
Height: 14–16"
Bloom Time: Late Spring to Early Fall

Lady Fern: This pretty lady bears lacy fronds up to 24" tall and 36" wide to create a lush, fluffy form that's sure to please. Makes a wonderful addition to darkened borders or woodland areas, where its soft green colour lightens up the shadowed spaces with ease.Anthyrium felix-femina
Size: #1 Plant
Height: 18–24"
Peak Foliage: Mid Spring to Late Fall

MaidenHair Fern: Ethereal and delicate, this fern's name is derived from the appearance of its feathery, circular fronds. They grow outward in flat fans that resemble the plaited coifs worn by maidens in olden days. This fern can also be grown indoors in a humid room with diffused light.Adiantum pedatum
