A few years ago, I wanted to create a flower bed by our entry stairs. This area gets only the tiniest bit of early morning sun. The rest of the day it sits in deep shade. The only option was to create a flower bed for the shade, so I found the most beautiful plants I could!
I found several plants that are very shade tolerant. They also needed to withstand Zone 3 weather. I wanted it to be all perennial plants, so that I wouldn’t have to do a lot to maintain the bed once it got settled in and growing. I couldn’t grow any shrubs here, because the snow that slides off our roof lands right here! Come over to the blog and see how I ended up with a beautiful flower bed….
