Unusual plants for shade gardens

By Melanie Mathieson

Part 1 - Trilliums
I am always seeking unusual plant species and varieties, even with over two hundred plant species in my garden, in Thunder Bay, I never stop searching for the rare and unusual to add. Unfortunately, some of those plants always don’t survive my conditions (soil and/or growing zone) but I at least I enjoy the challenge of trying them until I am sure I cannot keep them on my site. I proudly show anyone who visits, my unusual plants some of which include trilliums, wild ginger, liverwort and bloodroot.
