    Details

    This awesome 96-plant garden is packed with New England native perennials that prefer life on the shadier side and are ready to support woodland pollinators. Perfect for moderate shade to partial sun, this diverse selection offers an extended flowering season and includes the fascinating Early Figwort, a uniquely beautiful plant and a little-known pollinator and hummingbird favorite. Given the spread of some of the plants in this mix, we recommend a slightly wider spacing of about 1.5 feet a piece, for a roughly 150-200 square foot total area. 

    Blooms from April to October.
