Add greenery, color, and some "pop" to your shady areas. There are so many shrubs and perennials that thrive in the shade. If you like the rich dark color green, then plant some Yews in your shade garden. Add height and texture with different varieties of Mahonias. Don't forget to plant with low border plants such as ferns, ajuga, and different low growers. This is the perfect time to make your drab shade area into a showplace.
