Disclaimer at the start:

Rockery plants are in their most part sunshine fans and shade loving plants on the other hand are heavy leaf growers and might soon enough cover your beloved rocks(the ones you want to show off with).

Professionals advice:

It is entirely dependant on what type of shade are we talking about. Your plants would highly appreciate it if their spot gets at least a little direct sunlight for a small amount of the day.

We still got you though:

Here’s a list of rockery plants for shade that still make it for your pretentious I-want-this-and-that list.

Rockery plants that like shade list:

  1. Acaena  – Evergreen, perennial, including subshrubs.
