Natives for Shade

We've done the work for you! Finding plants for woodland gardens or simply a spot under a big shade tree can be a challenge. Choose from this list of some of the more popular plants for sites that are fully shaded or close to it. *NOTE: Although some of our woodland favorites are available as seed, consider transplants first. We suggest propagating woodland plants from seed only if you have experience germinating native seeds. Many of these species are difficult to start and slow to grow from seed. Bare-root and potted plants, on the other hand, offer an opportunity to transplant a native woodland plant that is already 1-2 years old.
