Stay Cool: Shade-Loving Plants to Beat the Summer Heat

by Ritik Raj 01 Jun 2024 0 Comments

Indian summers are famous for being too hot and too harsh. People refrain from going out during the day and prefer to stay inside where they get shade and relief from the sun. The same relief is needed by the plants. In summer, most plants can’t bear the heat and wither. But many plants grow well in the shade while beating the summer heat. 

Here are some of them for you to grow in your home garden. 

Begonia: Begonia is a perennial plant that's known for its colourful flowers and leaves. It's often grown as an indoor plant or in home gardens. It has many varieties with varying sizes, shapes, and colours, and some of its variants are popular for their flowers, while others are grown for their foliage. It thrives better in cold temperatures, that’s why they typically prefer shade or partial shade and are relatively easy to care for.

Their small, shallow roots make them perfect for small pots, suitable for indoor or balcony settings. They don't need much water and should be watered only after the soil dries. For optimal growth, mix compost, soil, and sand or husk, and don't forget to fertilise occasionally. 

Fuchsia: Fuchsia, is an amazing plant that produces attractive flowers of purple, pink, red, white, lavender, yellow and orange. These plants are one of the most amazing plant options that grow well in the shade in the summer season. These plants grow best under trees or on shady balconies because they don't perform well in direct or harsh sunshine. Instead, they do best in areas with indirect sunlight or filtered light. Thus, during the summer, maintain fuchsia in an area that receives partial sunshine. 

Hostas: For a summer garden host is a great option. It is a long-lived perennial plant that thrives in partial to full shade. It is a part of the asparagus plant family and hosta is mainly grown for foliage which can be variegated green and yellow colour. It also blooms bell-shaped flowers of light purple, lilac or white with an attractive fragrance that attracts bees and hummingbirds. These plants best grow in shade and can burn in full sunlight, especially in hot summers like India. Plant them in moist well-drained soil where its roots can stay cool. 

Bleeding Heart: There are numerous more names for this tropical perennial plant, including bag flower, bleeding glory, glory tree, etc. It's a flowing vine or climber that may reach a height of thirteen feet. Regular pruning will help you maintain it as a bush as well. 
This plant can thrive in both bright and shaded environments. Plant them in larger pots and planters, and keep the soil moist. It produces red and white blossoms that you may enhance by regularly fertilising and trimming. Apply some DAP and a quality compost. 


Peace Lily: The peace lily is an excellent choice if you're looking for a plant that thrives and continues to bloom throughout the summer. With its large, vivid green leaves and striking white flowers, it looks fantastic. Peace lilies grow well indoors, whether in your house or place of business. Not only does this plant tolerate the heat, but it can also flourish with proper care. Plants that are exposed to temperatures too high risk drying out and burning on their leaves. Thus, in summer keep it indoors, but ensure to provide it with bright sufficient light. Don't overwater a peace lily as this can cause root rotting. The best time to water is when the soil's top layer is dry. 

Conclusion 

It can be overwhelming to care for plants and watch them wither in hot weather. However, some plants require specific weather conditions to thrive. Many plants, such as Fushcia, Hosta, Bleeding Heart, and Peace Lily, can be grown indoors or in the shade during the summer while still producing bright flowers. All of these plants thrive in shade and require little care, making them not only suitable for the summer but also easy to grow.
