What goes with hostas? - Knowledgebase Question

I'm thinking about planting boxwood shrubs in the back of my flower bed, and hostas down in front, but I need some color in the middle. What perennial flowers do you suggest would go well in the middle with these two plants? I was thinking about daylilies but would like some other ideas.

Hostas prefer growing in shade and daylilies won't bloom well in the shade so I'd plant them elsewhere and plant bleeding heart, caladium, wishbone flower, astilbe, lobellia, bedding begonia or impatiens near the hostas.
