Dragon wing b,ego Ian is awesome.
Begonias and coleus are shade favorites, but you can also look at this list: http://www.birdsandblooms.com/blog/best-plants-container-shade-gardening/
Begonias do well in shade and look lovely in hanging bask rt ts. Ferns add a nice touch.
Impatiens fill out nicely and have a lot of flowers for a shady spot. They're also easy to maintain. They come in a variety of pink, coral, red, white, and lilac. You can also get a mixed variety.
I agree with both the begonias and the impatiens. I have a shady front yard and have both in hanging baskets, as well as spider plants. I go for the brighter colored begonias and impatiens that really show up well in shady areas to brighten them up. I like the bright red and orange reds, have also had some yellow begonias that showed up nice and bright. I usually go with the tuberous begonia plants, they have done great and bloom all summer and stay full and head themselves.
