Love these plants for the front planter box - create a sense of privacy at the front door. Shade loving container gardening, planters for front porch, ferns, hydrangea and sweet potato vine. Gorgeous and welcoming.
Most annuals are sun-loving and don’t do well in the near-constant shade of established trees. Sweet alyssum, coleus, begonias, touch-me-nots, and pansies are all able to enjoy this kind of shaded ground. This well-structured bed is edged with pavers.
