Pastel colours will brighten your shady nooks. Who says you can't have colour in the shade? With this special shade tolerant mix you can! Low growing pastels and lots of bright blues in the first year, boosted by taller white, mauve and yellow perennials in the second year. Best suited for light shaded areas with strong, filtered sun or a minimum of 1-2 hours of direct sun per day. Try it under trees or on the shady side of the house, but don't put it in heavy shade. Note that this mix will grow in full sun as well. Good all year around ground cover. Height 50-80 cm
