Restful Shade Garden Plan
Restful Shade
During the sweltering dog days of summer, there’s nothing quite like slipping out to a secluded corner of your backyard and sipping a cold glass of tea in a shaded garden. This one features mid to late summer bloomers, although there are plants that will provide pinpoint splashes of color throughout the seasons.

Featured plants include ligularia, coral bells, monkshood, lobelia and other great perennials.
