Do you have a shady patio or porch? Want to fill it with containers full of color? I have some beautiful ideas for you of shade loving plants in containers.
We all know about sunny loving plants for containers like these window boxes overflowing with petunias all along the deck rails.
or these hanging baskets that are lush and spilling.
But sometimes what we need are great examples of eye catching color that thrive in lower light and shade.
Colorful coleus, Rex Begonias, Fuschia, Caladiums, Impatiens and an array of flowering Begonias make for some gorgeous pairings.
Hayracks under windows on shaded porches.
Some Creeping Charlie, Sweet Potato Vine, Creeping Jenny and Vinca make some some great spillers.
Packed so tightly you just need to give them plenty of liquid food to keep them all happy. Worm casting tea with each watering would do the trick.
You have to love the bright greens and vibrant reds playing nice to together in tiered planters.
There are so many brightly colored foliage plants that you rarely miss the flowers.
But then there are also many shade loving flowers.
Some of these I have growing as ground cover and just need to dig up and plop into pots and display them on the porch. That bright red begonia is on my list to buy again this year. I had one last year but failed to over winter it in a warm spot and it didn’t make it but it was well worth the $4 bucks I paid for it as it was gorgeous all summer long.
What do you like to grow in shade spots?
Until next time!
More you Will Enjoy!
