Hosta & Coral Bells
Playful Combination For Shade Gardens
When anyone asks what plants I recommend for shade, I almost always answer with hostas and coral bells (Heuchera). Both perennials are staples for shade gardens. Hostas boast broad, thick, corrugated foliage that forms a graceful habit, while coral bells add long-lasting color for months on end, even in poor weather. Their versatility is what makes them so special, apart or together! Coming in an array of shapes, sizes, colors, and textures, you can get creative when mixing and matching them. With so many of them on the market, the possibilities are endless.
The best part? Since they’re both foliage plants, their display lasts from spring to frost, year after year, with virtually no maintenance. They are both reliable and easy to grow. Try growing them in containers or mixed beds! Even in city environments, these perennials won’t let you down.
