Perennials

When you buy perennials at Nolt’s, you are buying a locally grown, climate adjusted plant. That’s because we grow 90% of our own perennials. Because we plant them in the fall, they have already grown through a Winter. This assures you a healthy plant. Here is a listing of our most popular shade perennials. If you can't find what you are looking for, please give us a call because this is not a complete list!

Grasses (Tall)

Perennials for Shade

Astilbe are a very hardy and easy-to-grow perennial. Lacy green foliage emerges in April, followed by lots of flowers in June. One interesting thing about astilbe is that they thrive in full sun or shade.

Grow to 16" tall

Bleeding Heart

Although Bleeding Heart is a delicate looking plant, it is actually vey hardy. It is an early perennial, often in full bloom by late May. The delicate heart shaped flowers last for over a month and make a great cut flower. Bleeding Heart can take a lot of sunshine, but when it gets more than half the day in sunshine, its foliage tends to wither.

Grows 24-30" tall

Coral Bells

Coral Bells got their name from the coral bell flowers that they give in June to July. Now they are grown more for their foliage color than their flowers. Their vibrant colors bring life to any shade garden.

Hosta

Hosta are the big player in shade gardens. They come in many different colors and different sizes. When you add heavily textured leaves and lavender flowers it is no surprise that Hosta are a collector's item. Best of all, they are very hardy and easy-to-grow. We divided them according to size. There are so many kinds of hosta that we cannot list them all. This is only a sampling of what we grow!
