Made for Shade - Meadow Flowers

Made for Shade

Made for Shade is the perfect mix to brighten up your shady areas and bring instant light to your garden.

Who says you can’t have colour in the shade? With this special shade-tolerant mix, you can! In the first year, you will be delighted with low-growing pastels and lots of bright blues, followed by taller white, mauve and yellow perennials in the second year.

This mix is best suited for shaded areas – try it under trees or on the shady side of the house. However, don’t put it in heavy shade – it needs a minimum of 1-2 hours of direct sun a day.
