I want to plant some flowers in boxes this weekend on my bottom floor apartment balcony. It doesn't get much sunshine, can you recommend what I should plant.

Welcome to NGA, @Balconybabes .

Impatiens ( Busy Lizzy (Impatiens walleriana) ) and coleus ( Coleus (Coleus scutellarioides) ) are two commonly available plants that grow well in flower boxes in partial shade. Smiling

Plants are like that little ray of sunshine on a rainy day.
