    Hostas! There's a great variety of size, color, and texture as well as bloom color. Ajuga is a good ground cover for shade. Ferns come in many varieties and heights. Coral bells are another.

    Hostas are a perennial. Begonias,new guinea impatience,coleus,caladium wish bone flower are annuals if that is what you are looking for.

    Hostas are great in shade, but not what I would consider to be a flower. Coleus and caladium add color with their leaves, but again are not a flower. Though I love doing color in a garden with the foliage!~ Astilbe is a good perennial , and if you choose carefully, some varieties of astilbe can flower for most of the summer.

    Coleus is an annual with very colourful leaves, no flowers but beautiful and a huge selection of shapes and colours.
