Hanging basket shade

I would like some pretty colours in a hanging basket. It is mostly in the shade, but will get some direct sunshine around the hottest part of the day before it goes back into shade. Can you advise the best plants to choose please?

    Fuchsias & begonias will tolerate shade. Have you thought about heucherella for all year round interest?

    I have Busy Lizzie in one basket and mixed fuchsias in the other. These are in a shaded  and are doing really well.

    In these conditions I go for Begonias, the ones grown from corms, which are dried for the following year, and then ivey, and violas or pansies for the winter.
