Where the garden light is low, that's where you can grow some of the most bewitching plants available. These flowers flourish in the shade, generating intricate, layered, and luxuriant tapestries of bloom for year-round beauty. From the most innovative gardeners working today come unique designing ideas, with tips on knockout combinations for places where the sun barely shines. Manipulate light levels to turn dense shade dappled for a more hospitable growing space. Experiment with new techniques for improving the poor soils often found in these spots. Dip into the richly illustrated encyclopedia of shade loving perennials for all conditions--dry, moist, and wet. Whether you choose exquisite deep purple Lenten Rose or pretty green-leaved Maryland Pinkroot, your garden will be made in the shade!
