Plant Guide

Shade-tolerant plants

Before selecting plants for your site, it’s important to take note of the level of shade they will be receiving. The amount of shade a plant receives will directly affect the density of the foliage, as well as the flowering and fruiting characteristics. Young’s Greenhouse offers a variety of shade-tolerant plants that will thrive in various levels of sunlight.

Ground cover perennials and shrubs

If you’re looking for low-maintenance landscaping solutions, ground cover perennials and shrubs are the answer! Ground cover plants are good for areas you don’t want to mow, but that you may still want to walk on – like steep slopes or areas with prominent tree roots. Many of the ground covers at Young’s Greenhouse are beautiful when in bloom, so they are aesthetically pleasing and functional!

Ask a friendly Young’s Greenhouse associate to help you select a ground cover perennial or shrub that will be vigorous enough to cover the area of the landscape you need, but that won’t become a nuisance.
