7 Evergreen Plants For A Winter Shade Garden

As their name implies evergreen plants retain their leaves throughout the year and so are particularly useful when their deciduous cousins have lost their foliage. The seven plants described below will thrive in shade and continue to provide interest when other summer flowering types have shed their leaves for the winter. These useful plants are described in an article by Lauren Dunec Hoang which I found on the Houzz website.

Come winter, many of our favorite tried-and-true plants for shade lose their leaves or die back to the ground. By adding a few hardworking evergreen plants to shaded areas, you can fill in winter bare spots, create year-round structure and cut down on maintenance — all in one fell swoop.

To get started, take a look at these shade-tolerant evergreen plants and dynamic combinations from Houzz gardens.
