Shade garden combination impatiens, hokone, geranium, and heuchera

Front Shade Garden Flower Combinations

This snappy combination is working for my front shade garden; Impatiens – ‘Expo Orange’, Hakonechloa Aureola – ‘Golden Hokone Grass’, Geranium ‘Jolly Bee’, and Heuchera ‘Palace Purple’.

While the color combination of orange, chartreuse, and purple might not be a traditional one, I find it brings eye-popping interest to the path and lights up a dark area. Plants have been grown in an all organic soil mix  with a combination of Organic Mechanics, rotted manure, and my Illinois clay soil.

What interesting combinations are you cooking up in your garden?

  1. My problem is shade AND the mass & mess of roots from a Norway Maple. Can't be mad at the maple, though, it shades the house nicely from the afternoon sun.
