Full Sun Plants
This is a list of plants that prefer full sun, which is defined as being a location in direct sunlight for most of the day, particularly during mid-day (11am to 2pm), and is usually accomplished with a full southern exposure. Please note that while these plants prefer full sun, quite a few will also grow well in partial shade.

Partial Shade
This is a list of plants that prefer partial shade, which is defined as being a location that receives early morning sun (before 11am) or late afternoon sun (after 2pm), and is typically not a southern exposure, but can also be accomplished with light to moderate canopy (i.e. from trees) coverage. Please note that while these plants prefer partial shade, quite a few will also grow well in either full sun or full shade.

Moisture-Loving Plants
This is a group of perennials that prefer a moist soil. You will find these plants useful in areas of the garden that are consistently moist, such as low-lying spots or gardens alongside a pond or stream. This list is also useful in generally understanding which perennials abhor periods of drought. Please also note that ‘moist’ does not mean ‘saturated’, and although some of these plants may tolerate saturated soils for a short time, very few on this list actually prefer it.

Keep in mind that hummingbirds and butterflies also prefer a sunny and sheltered (i.e. from the wind) site.

Drought-Tolerant Plants
This is a group of perennials that can tolerate periods of drought. A term for designing gardens primarily using these plants is ‘xeriscaping’ or ‘water-wise gardening’. You will find these plants particularly useful with the increased municipal water restrictions of recent summers. Please keep in mind that the keyword here is ‘tolerant’, as very few of these plants will thrive in complete and constant drought – that is, these plants will tolerate periods of drought – they will still require some water. In addition, young plants need a period of time to become established in their new garden before their drought tolerance is to be relied upon.
