Types of Shade-Loving Trees and Plants

A plant's light requirements can vary when it comes to shade. Some plants will tolerate dense shade while others will still be considered shade plants, even though they require some amount of light.

Remember: Please read each specific plant's light requirements when choosing shade trees from this list!

Dense Shade: Trees and plants that require dense shade should not receive direct sunlight.

Shade: These trees and plants should receive dappled sun, bright reflected light, or less than 2 hours of direct sunlight a day.

Part Shade: These trees and plants should receive 2 to 3 hours of direct sunlight or a combination of morning sun and afternoon shade.
