As spring breathes new life into our gardens, it brings the promise of colorful blooms and lush greenery. However, for those with shaded lawns, choosing the right flowers that can thrive without abundant sunlight can be a challenge. At Everlast Lawns & Landscapes, we believe that every part of your garden, including those shaded areas, has the potential to flourish. Here are our top picks for spring flowers that will bring beauty and vibrancy to your shaded lawn, ensuring every corner of your outdoor space is in full bloom.

1. Bleeding Heart (Dicentra spectabilis)

The Bleeding Heart is a captivating perennial known for its heart-shaped pink and white flowers that dangle gracefully from arching stems. Thriving in partial to full shade, this plant prefers moist, well-drained soil. Its unique blooms make it a standout addition to any shaded garden spot, offering a touch of whimsy and romance from late spring to early summer.

2. Astilbe

Astilbe is a favorite among shade gardeners for its feathery, plume-like flowers available in shades of pink, red, white, and lavender. Beyond its beauty, Astilbe is celebrated for its ease of care and ability to thrive in the dense shade. Its vibrant foliage and flowers can add texture and color to your garden from late spring through summer, attracting pollinators while deterring deer.

3. Hostas

While primarily known for their lush foliage, Hostas also produce lovely flowers in shades of white, lavender, and purple during the spring and summer months. These hardy perennials are perfect for shaded areas, requiring minimal sunlight to maintain their vibrant leaves and subtle blooms. With a wide variety of sizes and leaf colors available, Hostas can provide a beautiful backdrop or accent to your shaded garden spaces.

4. Hellebores (Helleborus)

Hellebores, also known as Lenten roses, are early bloomers that can add color to your garden even in late winter or early spring. These low-maintenance perennials prefer partial to full shade and well-drained soil. Their cup-shaped flowers come in a range of colors, including white, green, pink, purple, and almost black, making them a versatile choice for any shaded landscape.

5. Primrose (Primula)

Primroses are one of the first flowers to bloom in spring, offering a vibrant palette of colors to brighten shaded areas. These cheerful perennials thrive in moist, well-drained soil and partial shade, making them ideal for borders, containers, or woodland gardens. With proper care, Primroses can provide a burst of color year after year.

6. Forget-Me-Not (Myosotis scorpioides)

Forget-Me-Nots are delightful annuals or biennials known for their tiny, bright blue flowers with yellow centers. Flourishing in both moist conditions and shaded areas, they can provide a stunning carpet of color in the spring and early summer. Easy to grow and maintain, Forget-Me-Nots are perfect for adding a touch of elegance to any shaded garden.

Eliza Barnhill

So far so good! Found Everlast through Next Door and signed up for monthly service. After meeting with Chris we learned about their other services and got new landscape lights installed and some cleanup work in the front and backyard. Happy to say the lights look amazing, and the initial cleanup was so promising that we’re on our second round of projects with them in just a couple weeks. Great personalized service and they’ve addressed any issues and requests that have popped up along the way. Excited to see the final product once it’s all finished.

Amanda Miller

Chris and team did an awesome job on our landscaping project. They had great ideas, were easy to work with and took time to listen to what we wanted to accomplish. The staff was always prompt, took care of our property and were very professional. I would highly recommend them, as the finished project looks great and their prices are very reasonable.

Ebba Hansen

Starting using them last spring for weekly mowing and trim. I’ve been very happy with the job they’ve done. Competitively priced. Just hired to overseed the backyard. They scheduled and completed the job quickly. Very professional.

Rich Markham

Chris was on time for the initial estimate. Gave us a fair price. Guys did the job on schedule. Had a little issue, but Chris got the team out to resolve quickly. Highly recommend this company.

Andrea Carver

I loved working with Everlast Lawns & Landscaping. I had an eyesore of a retaining wall that I hated. Working with Chris to redesign it with Allen blocks made such a difference. I appreciate his expertise and patience answering all my questions promptly and completely. Great job.

Deborah Woodworth

We highly recommend Everlast Lawn and Landscapes. We are new to the area, we saw their truck at a neighbors home and called them. Friendly, professional and prompt. They did a fantastic job on the clean up of our backyard and we are happy with the weekly lawn maintenance. But just as importantly we really appreciate their timely responses to any inquiry we may have had.
