Woodland Kit

Common name: For Full Shade Areas

Native plant

Adding color to shaded areas of the garden (areas that receive less that 4 hours of sun per day) can be a challenge.  Our Woodland Kit offers a variety of shade tolerant species that also have a range of bloom times and colors. It covers roughly a 45 sq. foot area, with a few species selected that can fill in a bare area under a tree or overhang after establishing for 1-2 seasons.  

We include the following species depending on availability. Substitutions may be necessary from time to time. Substitutes are chosen based on site suitability as well as general aesthetic and bloom time.

  • (2) White Snakeroot- Ageratina altissima
  • (2) Wild Columbine- Aquilegia canadensis
  • (3) Common Oak Sedge- Carex pensylvanica
  • (3) Bottlebrush Grass- Elymus hystrix
  • (3) Blue Woodland Phlox- Phlox divaricata
  • (2) Jacob's Ladder- Polemonium reptans
  • (3) Short's Aster- Symphyotrichum shortii
