Shy shady planting

A shady garden needs a different approach. Forget expectations of hot colour and massed blooms. For a woodland scene, I like pretty foliage and delicate stems of tiny flowers – perfect for the shady corners of the garden.  Saxifragaceae family gives lots of options. Here, Heuchera, probably ‘Palace Purple’ and Tellima grandiflora.
