Please could I get some ideas on which type of flowers/evergreen flowering shrubs that like dappled shade?
They don't have showy flowers but evergreen, interesting pom poms bearing berries, great leaves, look at Fatsia Japonica.
I find choisya ternats does well in some shade.
Winter box, forgotten the correct name likes some shade and smells lovely when it flowers. Nut, what's it's name ?
Thanks Nut. I think it is a small but lovely shrub.
Don't forget Ferns, ( I love Ferns )!
Most large garden centres have a shaded area. You could wander around and get some idea of what's available.
Not very original I know, but dwarf Rhododendrons would like that situation. Mahonia aquifolium grows well in that situation, though personally I find it a dull plant.
Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' is lovely in a shady spot - lovely blue flowers and cracking foliage.
Look at Longacre plants (plants for shade).
I am developing a bed of Roscoeas in a bed in the dappled shade of pear trees.
I had excellent service from this company. Ordered one day and delivered by courier at 9.30 next morning. Good packing and excellent plants.
Heucheras and there is a huge variety of them.
Thanks very much all - plenty there for me to research !!
