What kind of flowers should I put in my containers that are on my deck for morning sun and evening shade?

I plan to garden in containers on my deck. What kind of flowers should I put in my containers for morning sun and evening shade? I'd like my deck to always be in bloom.

Your flower choices depend on how much sun you get during the spring and summer. Sun-loving annuals (which are usually the heaviest-flowering plants) require at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. These include verbena, geranium, marigold, zinnia, and salvia. If you get less than 6 hours of sun per day, you should choose shade lovers such as begonia, caladium, fuchsia, and impatiens to provide constant color.
