Shady Characters
Plants for the Woodland Garden


Shady Characters is a local, family owned nursery in the midlands of South Carolina specializing in herbaceous perennials for the shady woodland garden. With an original emphasis on Hostas, the nursery has expanded to include other companion plants. Numerous selections of Heucheras, Tiarellas, Ferns and Hardy Gingers are available along with many other plants that are unusual and hard to find.

All of the plants that we sell are trialed in display beds at the nursery in order to determine their garden worthiness for our climate. The display beds also allow customers to see mature plants and how they can be incorporated into a southern landscape.
