What’s Cool in The Garden?

Beth Chatto, author of The Shade Garden said "In shade it is possible to create interest in every season - and such a feeling of peace and serenity that the area becomes a favorite part of the garden."

It certainly does become your primo spot on summer days like these. If fake air, the beach or swimming pools just aren’t available, shade gardens become a safe haven from the heat.  

The diverse plant palette that grows as an understory to your trees and shrubs in this category also offer some of the most spectacular foliage.

While many of us are sun seekers, including the plants we like to grow, nothing beats the heat of a shade garden!

P.S. This is only a tip of the iceberg for shade plants! Got a little carried away with the images.
