5 Herbs That Grow In Shades

5 Herbs That Grow In Shades

You have plenty of shady area in your landscape and you wonder what to plant in as this not too sunny part of your garden. There is no need for you to give up to regular shade-fillers, like ivy and pachysandra, when you have opportunity to plant medicinal and culinary herbs that easily grow in low-light conditions. While many herbs require enough sunlight everyday (for example, oregano, basil the herbs that originated around sunny Mediterranean), others, however listed as full-sun herbs will manage just fine in partial shade. Parsley, lemon balm and anise hyssop are among those herbs that grow well in shade.

You can find herbs growing under the tree only receiving a little or no sunlight, or in the deep forest, where they get direct sunlight only for a limited period of time, each day. These plants (spicebush, wild ginger, sweet woodruff) can very well adopt a shady garden site and at the same time add tempting new flavors to your cooking.
