Planning A Flower Garden - Knowledgebase Question

Dover, TN
Question by Myandu

I want to put plants in an area which is partly shaded, to have taller plants behind, shorter ones in front. I prefer all pink colors if I can get them. Can you suggest some plants that would accomplish this? Perennials would be better but I would go with annuals.
