Hostas aren’t the only plants for a shade garden. Enliven your landscape with something new! 

Hostas are the workhorses of the shade garden. Once they’re established, they’re pretty much low-maintenance plants. They tolerate periods of drought, and they are reliably hardy in areas that freeze during winter. They often sport big beefy leaves with interesting textures and colors that range from chartreuse and gray-blue to lemon-splashed green.

But a giant carpet of hostas — especially those with solid green leaves — can be boring. So we’ve asked Katherine Chamberlin, one of our Wenke team members, to share her favorite shade garden plant combinations.
