Shade Tree Plants For Zones 7 And 6
These plants are considered shade trees. They provide shade to their surrounding area. Some of them are shrubs, others are small trees and still others grow in gardens.
Many of them are native to tropical regions where they thrive under shady conditions. Other kinds of plants that fall into this category include bromeliads, palms and figs.
These plants can be used as landscape trees or they can be placed in containers. They grow best in zones 7 and 6 because they do not need a lot of direct sunlight to survive, they just need a bit of it. They can also thrive in areas that receive dappled sunlight because they do not have very dark leaves.
Most of them are native to regions that have high humidity. These are shade loving plants. Almost all of them have very colorful flowers or fruit.
These plants prefer soil that is well drained and does not have a lot of fertilizer in it. They can be easily grown from seeds, which can be collected from ripe fruits. Most of these plants can reach up to 10 feet in height.
Some of them can even grow up to 20 or 30 feet in height if they are grown from cuttings. They can have single or multiple stems. These plants can also thrive indoors if you have a bright area for them to grow in.
If you live in a cold region, these plants can still survive the winter if they are planted inside a container that can be moved inside your home. You can also move the container to a shadier location so that it can still receive sunlight, but not direct sunlight. You will just need to water it more often.
These plants are generally very easy to take care of.
