Yet little is available about how to garden effectively for shade so that the end result is varied, attractive, and ecologically vibrant. Until now. Craig Huegel discusses the many variables and complexities of shade gardening in Florida. He explores options for canopy, shrubs, and the colorful annuals and perennials that can tolerate even the darkest of areas. The compendium of flora presented will surprise general gardeners and native plant enthusiasts alike.
