  Shade Plants
These are plants that thrive in partial to complete shade. Some of these also do well in full sun, but many will not. For shady areas in your landscape, choose plants from this list with this symbol. Look upon large trees in your landscape as a blessing and an opportunity. There are lots of beautiful shade tolerant plants from ground covers to perennials to shrubs that will thrive under a large oak or maple.

Sometimes they miss a few, like this on, and the showy, fragrant flowers make an appearance.
