can any members recommend a plant pref a flower that likes shade. the area im hoping to plant up only gets a tiny bit of sun in the height of summer, thank you



Impatiens are good flowers for shade, but they are summer bedding only.

Azaleas and rhododendrons are woodland shrubs, although they only bloom once a year, camelias too, and hellebores also can cope with shade.
