The Q&A Archives: Annual Suggestion For Shady Area

Question: Do you carry an flowering annual in seed-form that does well in mostly shade (very limited sun)? I would like it to be fast-growing with a lot of flowers - blooms mid-summer to fall. Have anything?

Answer: It is a bit late to start planting from seed, however in future years you might try impatiens, begonias, or (not flowering but colorful foliage) coleus if you can start them early indoors. At this point, you might try potting up some tuberous begonias for blooms or possibly caladiums for summer and fall foliage color.
