Dry Shade Performers

Mahonias have been a great addition to the dry shady areas of my garden. Charity and Soft Caress are my favorites. Leatherleaf has popped up in various locations around the garden, but not so much that it is a nuisance. 

Charity thrived in this much neglected pot out of the fence among all the deer.
Soft Caress provides great texture and a pretty delicate compliment to the nearby holly ferns (not pictured)
This Leatherleaf was a volunteer and settled in nicely with the Sparkler Sedge, Black and Blue Salvia and purple heart. All dry shade plants!

    1. Since my garden has no irrigation, I often get excited about a plant that does well in the shade with little care or water. Mahonias fit the bill!
