Shade-loving flowers feel comfortable under the crown, branches of trees, on the north side of buildings.

Another main criterion for selecting plants is its size. Tall ones are suitable for decorating unremarkable buildings, fences. Ground cover plants will look good under the trunk of trees, near their base (trunk circle), they will create a harmonious composition mixed with decorative stones.
