For half century in biology is well established the classification division of all plants into shade-tolerant and light-loving. These differences can be observed in the natural change of tree species or as a result of the fires. It was then on sun-lands appear in the first place light-loving plants, and later, when the necessary conditions, is shade tolerant. Different species of trees, shrubs and herbs create a more powerful natural dome. As a result, for light-loving plants at the earth's surface environment for the growth becomes very little. However, their existence becomes impossible.

Shade-loving plants prefer diffused light and live only in the absence of direct sunlight. Otherwise, the growth of these plants is extremely depressed. This raises the likelihood of obtaining sunburn.

Shade-loving plants are mostly trees or grass growing under their canopy. The most outstanding representatives of this kind of flora are mosses, ferns, moss and lichens. They are ubiquitous in the forests. We are all familiar with shade plants-algae habitats which are the rivers, seas and lakes. From sunlight protects them with a thick layer of water.
With age, in the mountains, high latitudes, as well as in most dry climates in plants is a decrease of hardiness, there is the ability to develop and direct sunlight.

Shade-loving plants from a physiological point of view have a low intensity of photosynthesis. The leaves of this flora have a number of anatomical and morphological features. These plants have minimally differentiated columnar and spongy parenchyma. At the same time in their cellular structure contains a small number of chloroplasts (ten to forty), the surface area of which is from two to six square centimeters per square centimeter of the sheet.

Some plants growing under the forest canopy, to the formation of a natural sun dome are light on their physiological characteristics. Such flora can be attributed to ground-and ungulates.

If in your area there are places where almost no sunlight, then the most advantageous solution would be planting shade-loving plants. These plants have a special charm that is reflected in the variety and originality of the leaves. This is what gives the decorative planted their territories.

Against the background of these taller plants are placed perennial varieties of medium height. As a shadow you can specify globeflowers Asian and Chinese, and other large hosts.

The Lower level is planted with shade-loving plants area formed from the ground cover and creeping types. The most popular landing evergreen apical of pachysandra, small periwinkle and monecito of loosestrife.

Shade-loving houseplants grow well on the window sills of the Windows on the North side. For such places, where there is a lack of lighting, good:

-Chinese Abelia;

-Pulcinella senpolia;

-begonia Lucerna;

-aglaonema changeable etc.
