which patio pot plants are best for large pots in semi shade



Bit late this year for summer bedding, but bedding plants which tolerate shade well are fuchsia, buzy lizzies, begonias, lobelia, pansies.

As Acers prefer Ericaceous compost as you probably know :) , a pot in semi-shade would be a good place to grow them. I also have an Enkianthus (lovely autumn colour) in a pot, and a Pieris Forest Flame in semi-shade.
