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?

    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 image I took the cuttings for these baskets at the end of February and once they started flowering they didn't stop image I hope you like Fuchsias image
