    Hostas. They are beautiful and hardy and they come back every Spring. They will do well in bright shade, or medium shade. You won't regret it!

    Visit your local plant nursery. They can assist you with many different shade plants for your local area and soil. I, myself, have that issue in a different state. I am so tired of seeing Hostas as that seems to be the standard "go to" shade plant when there are so very many different, unique shade plants and shrubs.

    I agree with Judy - hostas are great, but you may also consider hydrangeas. They are gorgeous and adore shade.

    Lamium, some Heucheras, Astilbe, Bleding Heart, Brunnera all prefer shade.

    Florida has pretty diverse temperatures so need to see what zone your in & then go from there. The tropical areas are way different than the Tampa/Gainesville area.
