For colorful flowers in the summer, shade-tolerant annuals to consider include new impatiens hybrids such as Fusion Infrared, monkey flower (Mimulus hybridus), wishbone flower (Torenia fournieri) wax begonia (Begonia semperflorens), bush violet (Browallia speciosa), fuchsia and Brazilian fireworks (Porphyrocoma pohliana).

You might also consider taking advantage of shade-tolerant annuals that have colorful leaves rather than flowers. Caladium and an endless variety of coleus can energize shady spots.
