A Lightly Shaded Front Yard in Oak Park, Illinois

Zigzag Spiderwort, Tradescantia subaspera, grows in open woods. Its flowers appear at the axils, or the intersection of the leaf and the stem.

This an unusual, yet beautiful sedge.

Plantain-leafed Sedge, Carex plantaginea, looks more like an iris or something else. It has beautiful shiny blank pointed seedheads and goes well in front of rocks, logs or near a path.

When planting along a sidewalk or driveway, be careful that the plants do not get so large as to block one's way.

Even though a garden is considered shady, it may get periods of full sun during parts of the day.

A mixture of shrubs, flowers, ferns, grasses and sedges can be very beautiful if done with taste and imagination.
