Perennials for Sun and Shade


Some plant varieties demand to be in the sun while others prefer to have it made in the shade. Below is a list of the plants that will work the best in the most extreme spots of your yard. Use this list to help you fill problem areas in your yard and also as a guideline to make sure the plants you have/want are suitable for the area you would like to plant them so you don't have to move them later. Not all of the plants below are currently offered by Cottage Farms Direct, however, we do carry a large selection of them.
