"The Right Plants for Sun or Shade"
Your garden life will be much simpler if you can choose the right plants for certain areas of your lawn or garden. Plants that are ideal for their site will establish themselves quickly and have strong roots. They are also less likely to be stressed by adverse conditions such as diseases or insects.
For shady areas, Shaker Shed recommends Fiberous (wax) Begonias (green or bronze leaf), Coleus (Wizard Mix or Black Dragon), Impatiens (Accent series), or Torenia (Clown series). There are many more choices for plants that will thrive in sunny areas, including Alyssum, Cosmos, Marigolds, Nasturtium, Portulaca, and Verbena. Gazania, Salvia, and Petunia are also great choices for full sun. You could also plant a rose bush in full sun, and most flowering perennials will also do well.
