    What flowers grow best in a shady yard?

    Begonias, Jack-in-the Pulpit, toad lilies and others but for continual color the best is impatiens.  They bloom all summer here in the Northeast and offer so much beautiful color.

    Hostas love shade and asiatic lilies will tolerate it as long as it isn't full shade. Coneflowers  and hydrangeas will also tolerate part shade.

    Flowering annuals are nice and easy.  Here's a quick list.  Begonia, Impatiens, Torenia, Fuchsia.
    Perennials like Hosta and Azalea can't miss.
    For greenery in the shade, try Ferns, Pachysandria and Vinca.
    You can also move out your houseplants into the shade for the growing season ~ just remember to bring then back inside before frost.
