  • Flowers That Need Little Sun

    Posted by Kathie on Friday, September 25, 2009 9:59 PM ADT

    I'm making a new flower garden... however it will get very little sun light... does anyone have any suggestions as to what flowers would grow well without much sun?

      I have Hostas and Astilbe in a more shady area and they are very showy. The Astilbe gets beautiful flowers in pink, red and purple. I also think Goats beard does very well and has really nice long stems of white flowers.

      Hell Kathie, I have had to adapt to shade gardening many times over. Astilbe, hostas and Goats Beard are great. Some other plants that do well with little sun are... Perennials: Heuchera (Coral Bells), Bleeding Heart, ferns, hardy geraniums, Pulmonaria, Foxglove, Virginia Blue Bells (Mertensia), Primula, Toad Lily (Tricyrtis), Epimedium. Bulbs: Daffodils, Crocus, Wood Hyacinths
