If you’re looking for annuals that do well in locations that get some sun and are partly shady throughout the day, you’re in the right spot.
This is our main gallery in which these are the flowers we feature.
TIP: It’s important you actually know whether a particular spot is partly shady before running out and buying a bunch of annuals (which can add up in price). The key is to monitor a particular garden throughout the day. If it gets a few hours of sun and is shady the rest of the time, that’s what you’re looking for.
For each flower listed below, we provide some key information about each so be sure to check it out. We hope this list of annuals helps with your garden planning.
