Many gardeners are interested in which plants are suitable for decorating shady gardens. It is often believed that little grows in the shade. However, there are hardy flowers that can easily cope with a lack of light. One of them – jeffersonia dubious (Jeffersonia dubia).

It adapts perfectly even under dense tree canopy. This hardy perennial is able to withstand cold winters without shelter, starting from the third climate zone. Jeffersonia can withstand temperatures down to -40°C and forms low, voluminous bushes about 30 cm high. It blooms profusely and beautifully, enveloping its crown with lilac-blue flowers already in April and May, writes the Zen channel “GardenLife”.

Jeffersonia leaves are heart-shaped and come in a variety of shades: young leaves are purple-red and mature leaves are bluish-green. During the summer, single flowers may appear on the plant, which gives it additional showiness. This perennial has charm from early spring to late autumn.

Jeffersonia can decorate any shady corner and does not need to be replanted for many years. It is unpretentious to soils, although it prefers loose and moderately moist leaf humus.

Earlier we talked about plants, blooming at night.
