SCAPPOOSE - Some plants have it made in the shade.

Joy Creek Nursery celebrates the shade garden Sunday, June 12, with guest visits from fern expert Judith Jones and Collector's Nursery owner Diana Reeck. The pair have been raising plants from each other's nurseries (Jones owns Fancy Fronds) for years. Both will bring plants for sale. The nursery is located at 20300 N.W. Watson Road. For information, call (503) 543-7474.

Meanwhile, Horticulture Magazine gets a little shady in the newest issue of Garden Style. From recognizing the grade of shade in your yard to creating garden designs, this special issue digs deeply into the topic of shade gardens.
