Made in the Shade

Hostas look lovely in planters
The shade garden
Hostas, heuchera, ferns and astilbe
The soon-to-be flower of Francis Williams Hosta
Shooting Star

I love the juxtaposition of burgundy heuchera and the green of ferns, juniper, Alberta Spruce, and astilbe with a touch of pink in the flower of shooting star.
The heat of the last week or so has made me truly appreciate the shade!

Your shade garden looks like a wonderful peaceful place to chill on a hot summer day. Love your color choices.

Welcome to the Garden Party- thanks for linking up! You've got a lovely shade garden...my hostas all have holes in them, I didn't get on the slugs soon enough- yours are reminding me to make sure I do it first thing next spring. ;-)
