Today we’re going to Southern Ontario with Tracy Tallman.
We live in a very shady country. This limits our plant choices considerably. Among our favorites again. hosta (Zones 3-9), Hellebores (Helibores (hybrids, zones 5-8). Heuchera (Zones 5-9), bleeding. (Dicentra. sp.), Japanese ferns (Ethereum Nipponcum, Zones 3–8), grasses, and ground cover. Natural moss is growing between the stones of the path. It is a wonderfully peaceful oasis.
Tried and true shade lovers with Tracy Gardens make a wonderful lush garden. The background is a hemlock tree (Tsuga canadensis, zones 3–7). obverse, bleeding heart (Dysentery Spectaclezones 2–8) and host plants in a variety of colors, shapes, and textures.
Climbing hydrangea (Hydrangea Anomaly subsp petiolaris, zones 4–8) cover the structure with lush foliage and delicate sprays of white flowers. This vine can be slow growing at first, but once it is established, it becomes a large, beautiful part of the garden. The four-legged garden dwellers seem to enjoy it, too.
