Summer flowering shrubs for shade

Posted: 01/01/2015 at 12:14

Agree with many yellow foliage shrubs for shade 

hydrangeas, Daphne's, sarcoccoca. Mahonia, ......copying Busy"s list I have just noticed except avoid hypericum calycinum.  Hidcote is better as calycinum is rampant.

however, lots and lots of perennials for shade ....acteas, heucheras, astilbes, brunneras, tiarellas, astrantias, etc. etc.

diana, how much shade though?  Dappled shade or shade for part of the day opens up most shrubs.

Feeling almost balmy.

thought about the flower count but there are so many out there......even the odd daffodil braving the new year.  

Hope everybody has a great year

But they often still get brown patches if you don't choose wisely or site them out of cold draughty places

taxus varieties though can be topiarised, shaped and adapted

I've got a bad attack of lazyitis so won't be counting flowers but today tulips, alstroemerias, chrysanthemums and lilies are looking lovely.     They may be plastic though to take to my mum in hospital........apparently plastic flowers are enjoyed in care home

As with all potential illnesses, etc., resist the temptation to google.  Ask the doctors for their advice.  The worry is usually  worse than the reality

lots of skin cancers about now and they are mostly treatable.  A friend had some quite deep cancers on her back and upper arm.  She says she's fine now.

Agree with Edd.  You can't just leave this as it is Philippa. you can't sympathise with your neighbours or make excuses for them.  You will regret not having a word with them.  Good luck

Morning folks.  Feels quite balmy here.  

Flower count.....excited to see lovely yellow flowers growing by my front gate.  Taraxacum officinale thriving ......seed sown I guess!   Chrome yellow flowers on dark green foliage braving the elements
