Plants for a Woodland Garden

The dappled shade of a woodland floor can be filled with plants that will create interest throughout the year. Early on, before the overhead canopy has become established, flowering plants such as hellebores, primulas and pulmonarias predominate, while later in the year foliage plants like ferns and hostas predominate.
