  • Shade gardens are gardens planted and grown in areas with little or no direct sunlight during the day, either under trees or on the shady sides of buildings. Shade gardening presents certain challenges, in part because only certain plants are able to grow in shady conditions.

Resilient Garden: Planning and Planting for Unpredictable Weather
Resilient Garden: Planning and Planting for Unpredictable Weather
Weather patterns are changing - earlier springs, record summer temperatures and erratic rainfall. And even when it is raining, we still have to be aware of conserving water. From her gardens in the dry heat of Australia and the wet of Hampshire, Marylyn Abbott has learnt about plant behavior in these conditions and divulges her knowledge in this aptly timed book. She focuses on the dry gardens that work and why, how to create illusions of water, how to care for dry climate plants, and create the right conditions (including mulches to conserve water, plant groupings, preparation of plants) and drainage for the times when it suddenly pours and pours. Together with a list of beautiful plants that will 'weather well', this is both a practical and inspirational read.

Natural Garden The Natural Garden was created to be an environment that encourages visitors to rest, relax, and reflect on the very essence and brevity of life. This garden in its current configuration is the most recent addition to the Portland Japanese Garden, and it is also the most contemporary style, referred to as zoki no niwa, a style which includes plant materials that fall outside the list of plants traditionally associated with Japanese gardens. Notable is the use of vine maple, a shrub indigenous to this region. The garden focuses primarily on deciduous plants and is laid out to present seasonal change, from the budding new leaves of spring to the coolness of summer shade, the changing colors of autumn to the naked trees of winter. Originally called the Hillside Garden, referring to the steeper terrain in this part of the Garden, the denseness of the trees and shrubs create an immediate difference in atmosphere, something wilder yet equally tranquil. The flow of energy (ki) through the garden refreshes and restores all those who walk there. While the flow of ki is primarily directed by the waterway, note that nearly all the deciduous trees lean slightly in the same direction that the water is flowing. This garden was originally planned by the Garden's designer, Professor Takuma Tono, as a moss garden, but the plants proved difficult to maintain. The garden was redesigned in the early 1970s and then again in 1990, due to damage from earth movement.

This is the part of the shade garden closer to the pond. It gets early morning and very late afternoon sun. The big hosta is Sum and Substance. Behind the red-leafed caladium is a liglularia (I have a hard time spelling and saying it!) I am always re-working my gardens, so they are always "works in progress". I decided on using containers at the last minute this spring so that I could add a lush tropical flair to dry shade with clayey soil. The silver bucket containing the elephant ears will get a coat of either brown or dark green paint over the winter so that it will blend in better next year -- and I plan on filling in the area in front of these plants with brunnera and pulmonaria.
