Hostas, Shade-lovers, and Groundcovers
Welcome to the Hostas, Shade-lovers, and Groundcovers Gallery. As always, these shots are all from my garden. I’m a huge believer in the use of hostas and groundcover plants to help achieve dimension and visual continuity in a garden. They’re an invaluable component of my own garden’s overall design. Since most hostas, and many groundcover plants, are shade lovers, I thought I’d add my garden’s shade-loving denizens right into this mix, too (some of these are neither hostas nor groundcover plants – they just like shade). Please check out my articles right here on The Renaissance Garden Guy about growing these various plants, and using them in your own garden’s design. “Green Up Your Garden with Hostas!” is all about growing hostas and how to use them in your garden to create great visual impact. “Should You Underplant Your Featured Perennials?” gives you some great reasons why that’s a big “YES.” “7 Super Perennial Groundcovers for Sun, Shade, and More” offers some excellent suggestions for groundcovers, and how to grow them. They’re all informative reads with some practical advice and some pretty good photos of their own. In the meantime, have a look at these shots right here (I’ll be adding more regularly, so please make sure to check back in). I hope you like ’em. Cheers, and Happy Gardening!
