You can also look at alyssum, coleus(for its leaves), perilla ( for its leaves),torenia, browallia and fuschia.

Some of the tender summer bulbs, like caladiums, tuberous begonia and elephant ear.

 If the shade is just dappled , you might be able to grow stock, and nicotiana too.

Many thanks, Burpee, for the information.  I am now looking into perilla, torenia and browallia.  I am not familiar with these names, and want to learn more about these plants.  By the way, I love this site, because I can ask all of my gardening questions, and be assured that I am getting good answers.
