It’s that time of year when you start counting down the days for warmer weather. You can start planning your flowers for spring and don’t forget plants for your screen porch. The lower light level on a screen porch¬†should not stop you from adding color or interest.

There are many plants that do well in low light and don’t need a lot of water. Here are some plants to consider for your screen porch:


Lavender, hosta, daylilies, black-eyed Susan, Shasta daisy, yarrow. These plants are great because they come back year after year and don’t require a lot of care.


Impatiens, begonias, coleus, wax begonias, ferns. Annuals are great because they provide color all season long. They do need to be replaced each year but they are relatively low maintenance.

Some screen porches don’t let a ton of light in so it’s important to pick plants that can thrive in those conditions. These flowers and plants will make your screen porch the envy of the neighborhood. So get to planning and enjoy your beautiful screen porch all season long.
