Product Details

Invite hummingbirds and other pollinators to low-lit areas of the garden with our exclusive Hummingbird Garden for Shade. This 9-plant collection combines a varied array of colorful, carefree perennials that produce nectar-rich flowers at various times, ensuring a long season and uninterrupted supply of food for hummingbirds and other pollinators. Featured in the garden are the early spring, heart-shaped blossoms of Dicentra spectabilis, lavender-blue blossoms of Phlox stolonifera ‘Blue Ridge,’ and the deeper blue blooms of Pulmonaria ‘Blue Ensign.’ Next to offer up a feast is Heuchera 'Timeless Treasure' with its dramatically dark leaves of silvered purple and generously sized rose-pink flowers. Providing a mid- to late-summer food source is Hosta Guacamole. Covers approximately 28 sq ft.

The Hummingbird Garden for Shade collection includes:

  • Hosta Guacamole (1)
  • Dicentra spectabilis (1)
  • Heuchera 'Timeless Treasure' (PP 31,987)(2)
  • Phlox stolonifera 'Blue Ridge' (2)
  • Pulmonaria 'Blue Ensign' (3)

The collection includes 9 plants total, plus a planting diagram.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

I planted this collection in a morning sun/afternoon shade location last year. Unfortunately I lost the Blue ridge phlox & heuchera to rabbits. After that, I made sure to cage the hosta. I have never seen such a huge and healthy bleeding heart plant, after a full year it is 3 ft wide and is the star of the shade garden! The pulmonaria is beautiful and almost fluorescent after a long winter. I'm hoping the hosta really hits it's stride this year, but I plan to replace the lost plants so I can get the full effect of this garden design!

Planting Guide

I ordered three different plant collections. They all arrived in one box. Plants look healthy - but there are no planting guides. I had to call to have the planting guides emailed to me - now I have to sort through all the plants and figure out which belong to each collection. It would have been much more helpful to receive each collection in a separate box with the planting guide included in the box.

Planting Guide!

Planting guide came with my order and plants look great. The first picture for this item on the website is a diagram with a sample garden plan—I used that to determine where and how far apart to plant. First time planting bare root, but the guide that came with my order was really helpful. Can’t wait to see how this one turns out—thank you, White Flower Farm, for the shade option on the hummingbird garden kit!!!

No Planting Guide

I'm looking forward to seeing how this garden grows. No planting guide was included with the plants as promised and documentation of plant size/spread is not consistently included for us to be able to figure that out. I'm a novice with bare root plants but now will have to delay planting until you reopen to answer questions!
