Hallson Gardens :: Perennials :: Perennial ground cover plants :: Ground cover for shade

These perennial plants work well as ground covers for shady areas. Other plants such as Hostas can also work as a thick groundcover when planted in masses, but these plants tend to spread on their own so work well as a ground cover.

Thank you for visiting our online catalog. Hostas and daylilies ship all summer long, plus bearded Iris are now updated and shipping, however we are no longer shipping other perennials until fall, starting the 3rd week of September.

Orders for hostas, daylilies, and bearded Iris ship Monday, Tuesday, and Saturdays and take about 2 to 3 days to turn around as we continue to also be busy with walk-in customers at the nursery.

The nursery is open for visitors 7 days a week from 9am to 9pm including holidays. If you are interested in a particular item listed in our catalog and you are making a long drive please call us to check on availability first. Not all items are available for immediate purchase as not everything can be dug throughout the summer but we have an excellent selection of perennials for the sun and the shade. Hostas are dug on demand and many other perennials and shrubs are potted up and available for purchase. The selection here and what is listed in our mail order catalog varies but the nursery looks great and there is a lot blooming when you visit.

If you have any questions or concerns you can email us or call us toll free at (866) 568-1474.

Thank you very much for your support and think spring!
