There are lots of great annuals adapted to growing both in containers, and in shady places. Impatiens, Wax Begonias, Lobelia, Ageratum, Nicotiania, Coleus, Lamium, Creeping Charlie, Kenilworth Ivy, and Cerastium are all good choices for hanging baskets. Many herbs will grow in shady conditions as well. Try Basil and marjoram, just for fun.
