Peggy,

Some plants for shady containers and baskets include: impatiens, torenia (wishbone flower), caladiums, ferns, beefsteak plant (Irsene), Aztec grass, purple heart (Setcreasea), dwarf ivy (many types), and polka dot plant. Also consider using houseplants which thrive in such an environment: pothos, philodendron, ficus, corn plant and Dracaena.
