Whic perinnials would do best in part shade. I'd like ones with flowers and I would love the lantana Miss Huff

Lantana needs full sunshine so I don't think it will be happy in part shade. Some flowers that should do well include hosta (many foliage colors available), pulmonaria, Solomon's seal, (English ivy, there are variegated and specialty forms available), bleeding heart, tiarella, ferns, astilbe, and sweet woodruff, as well as in the sunnier areas possibly heuchera, perennial geranium, ceratostigma, lamium, creeping jenny, ajuga, violas and clematis. You could also add annual plantings such as caladium, impatiens and coleus. Enjoy your shade garden!
