OUR TOP 10 PERENNIALS FOR DEEP SHADE

NORTH-FACING GARDENS SEE VERY LITTLE (IF ANY) SUNLIGHT. THEY ALSO TEND TO BE SHADED BY BOULEVARD TREES. DO NOT DESPAIR! SHADE GARDENS CAN BE BEAUTIFUL AND HAVE A MYSTIQUE ALL THEIR OWN! THIS IS AN IDEAL PLANT FOR YOUR DEEP SHADE GARDEN!

Ornamental Features

White Splendor Windflower has masses of beautiful white daisy flowers with yellow eyes at the ends of the stems in mid spring, which are most effective when planted in groupings. Its deeply cut round leaves remain emerald green in colour throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes

White Splendor Windflower is a dense herbaceous perennial with a more or less rounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and should be cut back in late fall in preparation for winter. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

White Splendor Windflower is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Mass Planting
  • General Garden Use

Planting & Growing

White Splendor Windflower will grow to be about 12 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 18 inches. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years. As this plant tends to go dormant in summer, it is best interplanted with late-season bloomers to hide the dying foliage.

This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America. It can be propagated by division; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.
