Twenty-plant collection features several native perennials that thrive in dry, shaded conditions—and that provide colorful foliage and blooms from spring to fall. The Dry Shade Collection includes three Foamflowers, three Oak Sedges, three Autumn Bride Heucheras, three Blue Moon Phlox, five Blue Ice Amsonia and three Allium cernuum. Native to eastern North America, Foamflowers provide early-spring fairy wand flowers of white or light pink over deeply veined, green leaves often tinged with burgundy. Its tough disposition and spreading habit makes Oak Sedge, a native grass, an excellent ground cover. Autumn Bride Heuchera is a tough ground cover that doubles as a cut flower. In late summer, fountains of pure white flowers open above the chartreuse to lime green foliage. Pollinators love the knee-high sea of Blue Moon Phlox's fragrant, blue flowers in the spring. It's an excellent, long-lived native ground cover. Blue Ice Amsonia offers a long bloom time and dense, compact mounds of dark green leaves that turn brilliant yellow in the fall. Dependable and drought-tolerant Allium cernuum provides nodding pink flowers in the spring. All the plants in this collection perennialize, or come back year after year; some also naturalize, multiplying every year. Deer tend to avoid.
