Herbs for Full Shade

Posted on: April 6, 1998

I know that almost all herbs can be in shade or inside, but I wanted to make sure which herbs can be in full shade.

Below is a list of herbs that tolerate shade and if they need shade I have put (sh) beside them: Aconite, Ban Xia(sh), Celandine, Chickweed, Sweet Cicely, Clivers(sh), Black Cohosh, Columbine, Mexican Coriander, Costmary, Eclipta(sh), Wild Ginger(sh), Asiatic Ginseng(sh), American Ginseng(sh), Sweet Goldenrod, Ground Ivy, Herb Robert, Chinese Lantern, Wild Leek, Great Lobelia, Common Marjoram, Mayapple, Corsican Mint(sh), Mitsuba(sh), Oxlip, Periwinkle, Chinese Privet, Sweet Rocket, Rue, Sassafras, Valerian, Sweet Violet, Willow Herb, Yerba Mate, Sweet Woodruff(sh). We do not have data on all of our herbs, and there may be others that can take full shade and still do well.
