Because of Florida's tropical and subtropical climates, it is especially important for the state's gardeners to incorporate areas that provide refuge from the heat and sun. Yet little is available about how to garden effectively for shade so that the end result is varied, attractive, and ecologically vibrant--until now. Craig Huegel discusses the many variables and complexities of shade gardening in Florida. He explores options for canopy, shrubs, and the colorful annuals and perennials that can telerate even the darkest of area. The compendium of flora presented will surprise general gardeners and native plant enthusiasts alike.
