I have windowbox facing east in a Florida home(don't know my zone) that doesn't get sun due to roof overhang. What can I plant for decorative look?

How about Bloodleaf (Iresine herbstii 'Brilliantissima'), Crossandra 'Orange Marmalade', Coleus, Hardy Begonia, Blue Sage (Eranthemum pulchellum), Flax Lily(Dianella tasmanica 'Variegata') or Hosta? They are all colorful and shade tolerant. Enjoy!
