Occasionally, some of our Connecticut landscape clients want us to install a shade garden.  There are so many worthy native plants for natualizing a shade garden but one of my favorite plants for early season interest is Virginia Bluebells.  For early spring, it’s hard to beat these blue flowering plants that will naturalize the forest floor.  Ferns, another favorite for large scale, low maintenance shade gardens, make a great companion plant for the Bluebells.  The Bluebells will break dormancy early, provide an early spring show just as the ferns start to awaken from their winter slumber.  Finally, when the ferns finally hit their stride, the Bluebells are preparing to go dormant for another year.  20130429_174030_resized

If you have a shady area that you are trying to naturalize, give Bluebells a try.
