427 plants for full shade…

Imagine my delight when I searched for shade plants and found this site!  32 matches for ferns (some are sold out), 52 vines and a delightful assortment of giant “architectural” plants.  Mom has already fallen for two Rodgersiae.  She’s a sucker for the big and weird of the plant world.




  1. Well, I planted my Rodgersiae in a damp location, and they should be fine as long as we don’t have a drought here in Central Virginia like we did 2 years ago. As I planted the second one, I realized that I was standing in the middle of a ground bee hive. They were not aggressive – thank goodness, but I am not sure what to do about them. They are rather beneficial unlike yellow jackets that also live in the ground. I think I could leave them there except that if the hive gets much bigger (multiple holes already exist) I can’t plant there. Guess I’ll watch the situation.
