|Can you suggest brightly colored flowers for a shady bed?
|There are many brightly-colored annuals and perennials that bloom well in shady conditions. You can even complement them with some non-blooming plants with variegated foliage. Try Hosta, Vinca minor, and Lamium for a backdrop. Then add Impatiens, Campanula, Coleus, Clivia, Lilies, Primrose, Pansies, Bleeding Heart, Forget-me-not, Begonia and Columbine. Fuchsias are spectacular and appreciate being grown in containers so they can stretch and cascade. Maybe you can fit a few in to make a dramatic statement. Enjoy!
