Not everyone has the privilege having a full sun. If you are including, time to look for an easy alternative to grow some planter ideas for shade. Growing the planter ideas for shade still have an aesthetic touch, just like the ones with full sun. So, here we go.
1. Create An Architectural Interest Using Your Plant Forms
For example, you can grow and arrange the mounding plants in square containers next to a full moon maple. These two plants contrast each other that enhance the beauty of the surrounding. Some recommended plants are Black mondo grass, Fullmoon maple, Oxalis ‘Zinfandel’, and Foamflower.
2. Create A Simple Statement
Having a beauty does not require being too bold. Either way, in a simple statement, you will find such authentic yet dramatic beauty. Create this vibe by growing and arranging two plants (having two leaf colors), they are Caladium ‘Gingerland’, and Solenostemon ‘Inky Fingers’.
3. Pay More Attention To The Planter Or Container
The planter choice influences the plant will look like. To make your plants get more attention, use the sleek and shiny pots. Complete the bold plants, such as Caladium ‘Florida Elise’, Perilla ‘Gage’s Shadow’, Asparagus fern, New Guinea impatiens, and Oxalis ‘Zinfandel’.
4. Some Bold Planters
This idea is the opposite to the previous. This time, create a dramatic contrast between the colorful foliage with a bold bucket. Some plants might be Coleus, sweet potato vine, and Elephant Ears. Even a classic planter can be your choice to put these plants on.
5. The Contrasting Planters

After all those bold planter ideas, this is the time to hold on a second. Take a look at a classic planter filled with Hosta ‘Aureomarginata’.
