It’s no surprise that gardening here in Calgary can prove challenging. Our winters are longer than we’d like, and it seems like summers are fleeting -- the typical frost free period is from the end of May to the middle of September. Then when you consider the shaded areas in your yard because of the low angle of the sun it may be frustrating to find plants that grow well and add colour to your yard. Don’t fret though, there are plenty of options available!
If you want to add some colour to those bare, shady spots in your yard think about planting shade loving perennials. Many of them have beautifully coloured foliage and unique textures; some even produce flowers. These plants bring life and vibrancy to what may appear to be a drab space. Extra bonus is that they come back year after year saving you time planting every spring!
Calgary Plants Online Garden Centre has a great selection of shade perennials in a variety of colours to help brighten your yard.

So you see, even with a short growing season here in Calgary, it’s possible to have beautiful colour in the shady spots of your garden by planting some of these shade loving perennials!
