List of Shade Plants and Flowers
I have been looking for shade plants here at this forum and I have found many to choose from, only I couldn't find where to buy them. I didn't want to get one plant here then one plant there because the shipping would be too high. So I've found four sources where I could fine almost all of the plants and flowers I like on the internet. You probably already know this but I thought I would share anyway.
I've dealt with two of these companies already and they are reputable (MichiganBlub and SpringHill).I'm not sure about the other two. Maybe someone at this forum has dealt with them and would let me know.
I made a wish-list of plants/flowers for my mostly shade garden beds that I'm preparing now.
I noted if it's other than partshade/shade also where to buy,their height and when they bloom since I just can't remember all that information.
Hope this is helpful to others.
