The world in itself is a huge symbiosis where all the living beings thrive and have a harmonic dependence on each other. Same is the case with a simple garden. There are several types of plants present in a flowering garden which have different sizes and varied growing patterns. In your garden itself you would find many different plants grouped together.
The first type of soil is the basic damp or moist soil that found in the shade of larger trees. This soil is extremely favorable for the growth of smaller plants that need more water and moisture and tend to have a delicate set of flowers.
The second type is the dry type of soil that is found in the shadow of large structures and buildings. This type of soil is better for plants like medium-sized trees and the shrubs that usually do not require a large amount of soil.
Along with the types of soil another very important factor that has to be considered is the amount of shade and sunlight that is observed on the location where the plant is to be planted. Most flowering plants thrive in an area where there is a small amount of shade available during the day.
On the other hand, there are also some types of plants which thrive only in total shade and cannot sustain the intense heat of the sun. Such plants that do not survive the heat of the sun are often used as hanging plants.
Hence, you have to be particularly careful while selecting the plant specimen and the location while planting it in a shaded area. Here are few examples with characteristics of flowering plants.
The flowers of these plants are usually made of five petals and the color of the petals depends upon the species and cultivar. After the flowering process is complete, the fruit capsules off this plant, thus completing the reproduction process.
Crimson and Gold
This is a very good flowering shrub that you can plant in a shady area. It is an early flowering plant and has flowers blooming on it from March to May. It thrives very well in partial or complete shade and has an average rate of growth. Its best feature is that it grows very well in a less fertile soil.
Hence, if you plant and take care of it then it would be a lot of time before you reap the fruits (or rather the flowers) of your efforts. The flowering season of this plant spans between April to May, which is rather short.
Another very brilliant flowering shrub that I would like to recommend is the Flaming Silver. Though this shrub is slow-growing, it bears very brilliant flowers during the months of April and May. This shrub is an evergreen and is thus lively throughout the year.
In the evolution of the flowering plants, we must not forget the flowering trees that bless the ground with a blanket of beautiful flowers that they shed.
It is advisable to plant the background piece and the centerpiece together. The background piece can be a tree or a large shrub and the centerpiece can be a simple and small flowering plant.
