“Landscaping in Shady Areas” was originally broadcast live on June 8, 2021. View the recording above.
Think you’ve got it made in the shade? Here in Florida, shade is a valuable part of our landscapes, but it creates challenges. That’s because plants feed on sunlight and even the most shade-tolerant plants require it to grow and flower. In dense shade, few plants survive for long.
In this video Dr. Craig Huegel introduces you to the complex concept called shade. Learn how shade occurs by degrees and by season, and how sunlight also varies by time of day and year. After the webinar, you will have a basic understanding of how to choose the appropriate native plants and wildflowers for your shady spots, creating a shade-tolerant landscape that will maximize its diversity and ecological function.
