Hello Bunny. Did you want perennials or annuals or don't you mind? If it's in shade and you want annuals in tubs that narrows the choice, but "Busy-Lizzies" (Impatiens) are a classic for that situation. Bedding begonias, violas and pansies as well. I get mine as plug plants, but you can sow seeds. If perennials, then hostas look good in pots - there is one with a lovely purple flower, some have more flowers than others. Also heucheras for the different leaves, corydalis, liriope and several hardy geraniums will grow in shade. What about fuschias?
