The plants featured here take varying degrees of shade, so after trees’ canopies leaf out fully, they can still thrive. Some, such as sharp-lobed hepatica, are among the first blooms in early spring. And others, like the yellow archangel, will transition your garden from late spring to early summer.
Unique spring flowers attract early pollinators
No matter if these flowers open in early, mid- or late spring, though, they provide some of the first food for pollinators as temps start to warm and beneficial insects become more active. The variety of bloom shapes and sizes not only adds a variety of texture to your garden, but it also attracts a diverse range of pollinators. Scroll on to learn more about each of these peculiar spring beauties — they might be just the spring flowers you need for your shade.
