If you’re looking to create beautiful, native habitat that can strive in little or no direct sunlight, this kit has you covered. Perfect for yards with tall trees and plenty of shade and filtered sunlight. Expect purple and red blooms early in the year and purples and whites as Summer and Fall roll around. The Shade Garden Kit will provide an ideal environment for many varieties of insects and pollinators.  Don’t be surprised if you see a hummingbird or two!

Consider planting under mature trees, on the north facing side of taller buildings, and anywhere else with limited direct sunlight.

This kit includes 36 live plants.  Six plants of each species listed below.  We recommend planting in a 40-60 square foot area.  

Our Shade Garden Kit pairs well with our Woodland Edge Kit.
