2. Astilbes (Astilbe spp.): Astilbes produce feathery, colorful flowers in shades of pink, red, purple, and white. They prefer moist soil and are ideal for shady, damp areas.

3. Ferns (Various genera): Ferns are known for their delicate, arching fronds and add a graceful touch to shady areas. Some popular fern varieties include Maidenhair ferns (Adiantum spp.) and Japanese painted ferns (Athyrium niponicum).

4. Bleeding Heart (Dicentra spp.): Bleeding Hearts showcase heart-shaped, pendulous flowers in shades of pink, white, or red. They bloom in the spring and prefer partial shade.

5. Coral Bells (Heuchera spp.): Coral Bells have vibrant foliage in shades of green, purple, silver, or variegated patterns. They also produce tiny, bell-shaped flowers on tall stalks.

6. Lungwort (Pulmonaria spp.): Lungwort plants have spotted, silver-speckled leaves and clusters of pink, blue, or white flowers. They thrive in shade and can tolerate moist soils.

7. Foamflower (Tiarella spp.): Foamflowers have delicate, frothy flower clusters in shades of pink or white. They are versatile shade perennials that prefer well-drained soil.

8. Japanese Forest Grass (Hakonechloa spp.): Japanese Forest Grass adds texture and movement to shady areas with its cascading, arching foliage in shades of yellow or green.
