Shade landscaping can be a challenge, yet it can bring out the colors and textures of many beautiful plants too tender for full-out Florida sun.
People often think there's nothing pretty or colorful to plant in shade - but they're wrong.
Yes, deep dark shade is a tough place to grow anything, but part shade - with a bit of morning or late day sun, or dappled sunlight through trees - or bright full shade can be landscaped very successfully...if you use the right plants.
(Need more info on types of shade? See Plant Light Requirements.)
A lush landscape in shade often features white or light colors that are visible after sundown.
Here are collections of plants that thrive in a part shade situation. Feel free to mix and match or add other plants you like to customize your design.
