Shaded Slope


A large old Kwanzan Cherry tree shades this slope which is planted with a variety of shade happy native and non-native plants. Some of the plants are dormant in the winter like the May Apples, hardy geraniums, woodland poppies, ginger, hardy begonias, celandine poppies, hostas, asters, bloodroot, trillium, and Solomon Seal. Other plants are evergreen like the strawberry begonias, hellebores, carex, and rohdea. The arum is green in the winter with attractive arrow-shaped leaves and dormant in the summer.

The slope changes with the seasons as plants come and go. Each plant blooming or showing its foliage in its own time.
