    You can plant ajuga (burgundy glow is gorgeous en masse), or creeping myrtle which will be a flowering ground cover then plant heuchera (coral bells) with bright colorful foliage in groups of 3 or 5 for gorgeous year round color in most zones. Heuchera foliage comes in great colors...purple, peach, pink, apricot, Carmel, lime green with red, etc and gave a great natural mounding habit.

    Begonias the waxy kind. Once was a shade plant but now tolerate both very well.

    Begonias are a good idea!

    Begonias and coral bells work well for me, along with a few hostas and hydrangeas if you keep them watered!

    Better yet go native! Check with your local extension office, they can help advise you on what plants are native to your area & what will work with your light conditions. Native plants are beautiful, environmentally friendly, use less water & attract our ever decreasing pollinator population.
