best annuals for shade / partial shade

what do you have success with in these kinds of places to add colour after June? I mainly need to plant in stealth pots (long toms painted dark brown) to stand a chance against slugs and snails. Antirrhinum and nicotiana always do okay, but I'm bored of them. Any suggestions?
Tree spinach had seeded itself into a shadey patch this year and did OK
In the sticks near Peterborough
How shady are we talking about?
Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
There are two tried and trusted annuals for shade-impatiens and begonias-not to everyone's taste but they do work-still got begonias flowering now-despite 2 hard frosts
Fuchsia - trailing Puts Folly is brilliant for colour all summer long I took the cuttings for these baskets at the end of February and once they started flowering they didn't stop I hope you like Fuchsias
