    Posted: May/14/2009 at 2:18pm

My Mom bought a house and could never get any flowers to grow on the end of the garage cause its always shaded.  Anybody know any flowering plants that will grow well in the shade, preferably perrenials so you don't have to replant them every year?  I know this is totally unsnowboardrelated, but I'm guessing at least one out of 100,000 members might just know something.

Pretty sure dirtysouth is a botanist.

Whether that is legit, or he sells weed to high school kids, is unclear at this time.

Google is your friend...

Aglaonema

This family of low light house plants has some very tough plants in it. You do not need a green thumb to get these to thrive. The Aglaonema has many narrow stems with large, oval leaves on them. Leave variations come in dark green and silver, green and chartreuse variegates, and green with creamy white markings.

Dieffenbachia

Dieffenbachia is also called “dumb cane” since it contains an injurious sap that will make the inside of your mouth and tongue swell if tasted. This low light house plant grows a tall stalk, which is circled with giant leaves in varying shades of green and white variegations.

English Ivy

This low light house plant will grow easily in a pot or trained to climb up a trellis or frame. English ivy is a very tough plant that spreads readily and is very hard to kill. All varieties of English Ivy have pointy leaves with prominent leaf veins.

Snake Plant

The snake plant is also called “mother in law's tongue,” and is one of the hardest plants to kill. This low light house plant has strong, upright leaves that look like green and yellow ribbons. They will grow up to four feet tall.

Peace Lily

The peace lily is one of the few low light house plants that flowers regularly. It prefers shade and cooler temperatures. It has glossy green leaves and flat whiteflowers. This low light house plant grows from one to one and a half feet tall.

Philodendron

The philodendron family of house plants tolerate shade, but do better with diffused sunlight. There are many varieties of this low light house plants with leaves ranging from deep, glossy green to yellow-veined styles, and red tinged ones.

Pilea

Pilea comes from a large family of low light house plants that enjoy diffused light or shade. There is creeping pilea, which has small, bright green leaves. Other varieties have larger, more ornamental leaves with silver or yellow variegations.

Silver Lace Fern

This plant is one that can grow in the lowest light. It is a small fern with green and silver colored fronds or leaves. This low light house plant will add a splash of brightness to dim rooms. There are also all green varieties.

i don't know if you want a vine...but morning glory will grow in seemingly any circumstances. It has really pretty big flowers so it always looks good and will bring lots of bugs to help pollunate any other plants!

You can go into home depot or what every store you are going to buy the plants from and ask a FEW of the people who work there. It is hit and miss sometimes you can find people who knows a lot or just some random teenager.

Such a huge misconception.  After working at HD for about a year, you'd be surprised at the amount of people that come in and assume that since you're wearing an orange apron that you're the master of all knowledge.  Well, contrary to popular belief, we're just humans like the rest of the world...
 
There's usually at least one "garden specialist" per store, sometimes more depending on the size of the store and the amount of business that they do, but everybody else is just there stocking shelves and hating life.  Your line about it being hit and miss is so true.
 
I'd say either go to an actually nursery/greenhouse place, or hit up your good friend Goog L.

No, it's about plants for around the garage, not weed....or weeds either. Thanks for the big list Levi :)
