Hello,

For an annual, I always plant impatiens. I just love them

Impatiens always work. I, too, love them! If you have dappled shade in some areas, cone flowers actually work, although their flowers are more white than pink. Day lilies will also bloom in light shade, and if it's too dark, they'll at least put out foliage.

I love impatiens for shade. Hosta does well in shade, and will put out some spikes/shoots of flowers. Caladiums will do well in the shade. I like the look of mixing red and white, so I'll plant either white caladiums with red impatiens around them, or red caladiums with white impatiens around them. Looks great in a large container!

Daylilies are our favorite for shade. One advantage is that they don't require as much water as other shade plants. Also, they have great flowers! (07/31/2010)
