Often you stand in front of the shady spots in the garden and would like to make them more beautiful or even use them. Vegetables and herbs for the shade are rare and most other typical shade plants don't exactly score points with their flowers. However, there are a few insider tips that are attractive and even useful. Their flowers provide food for many different types of insects.
The selected plant species are also suitable for planting under trees and shrubs.

This seed kit contains seeds of 5 attractive wildflowers that prefer shady places:

  • Marshmallow (organic) (Althaea officinalis)
    It is ideal as a purely ornamental and decorative plant in any cottage garden, as a pot plant, decorates herb and flower beds and is a great food plant for bees. But above all, the marshmallow is a medicinal plant that has been used since ancient times and mainly has an expectorant effect.
  • Lungwort (organic) (Pulmonaria officinalis)
    The wild perennial with white-dotted upper leaves is a real feast for the eyes. It grows mainly in open deciduous forests and is one of the first important nectar plants of the year for insects.
  • Jacob's Ladder (Organic) (Polemonium caerulum)
    Sky-blue, delicate flowers shine in partial shade from June onwards. A beautiful perennial for the edge of a pond and in a flowerbed. Good insect food.
  • Mountain knapweed (organic) (Centaurea montana)
    Wild beauty with unusual blue flower heads that provide good food for bees, bumblebees and butterflies. Birds like to eat the seed heads in autumn.
  • Healing betony, Betony (organic) (Betonica officinalis)
    A native wild perennial with a rich history and many beautiful flowers in pink to violet, which provides food especially for bumblebees. It was considered a panacea for many centuries.
