When landscaping your yard you may want to choose plants that may create some shaded space for relaxation. Shaded space will help protect your lawn from the hot sun.
They will also help to attract bees and butterflies and other insects. And aren’t those things a wonderful sight to see? We’ve put together a list of plants that will help keep your space shaded.
Hosta: A lot of people like this plant because of its colours. It is beautifully coloured with blues and greens and whites.
Hellebore: For people who love to have plants in their yard, this is the plant you want to choose. It grows from the winter months and flowers until the spring months.
Bleeding Hearts: This type of plant is very popular. People love the heart shaped flower that it produces ad love that it is low maintenance.
