flowering annuals in the shade
I am new to shade gardening - and have the usual hostas, ferns, bleeding heart, astilbes but am looking for some long blooming flowers for some color. Any suggestions other than impatients and begonias?

Torenia (wishbone flower) blooms well in shade. Also consider plants with colorful foliage that are attractive even when not in bloom. Coleus and caladiums fit this category.
