    I have had great luck with Impatiens and Hostas over the years.

    Hostas grow good in shade. Also, annuals like impatients grow in shade. The less green a plant is, the less sun it needs, i.e., any plant that is varigated, that is, has white and green mix on the leaves, do well in shade.

    Ferns are great when you have a large area. Plant them in the back and add smaller flowering plants in the front.
