Let there be … shade!

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published April 19, 2013 at 11:12 a.m.

Shade is a very good thing in an Arkansas summer, and a lovely garden in the cool shade is a particular pleasure when temperatures soar, writes Janet B. Carson in HomeStyle.

But summer is not the only season when shade shines. A garden in the shade can be a thing of beauty all year.

There are plenty of plants that enjoy a shady spot, so having something in bloom in every season is easily achieved. Avoid plants that don’t do well without full sun — fruits, vegetables and grass — and you’re off to a good start.

See Carson’s recommendations for plants that will transform your shady spots into garden delights in Saturday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
