Such plants like Small Leaf Hostas, Voilas,Coral Bells to name a few or even slow growing mini Conifers which would give good bloom can be perfect choices for one’s Porch or Patio. Lenten Roses also bloom early in the year and love shade. Get a good potting mix and water the plants in well, along with fertilizing the pot once or twice a year and your plants should do remarkably well. All the plants mentioned here are Perennials so you wont have bother about repurchasing or replanting every year.
