Impatiets ( buy a flat should be between $10-$15 ) do well in shady areas, petunias will do well in full sun. Both will spread out with lots of blooms. Dusty miller is a nice accent and contrast for both. I have planted it in sun and shade and it did well in both. Last year I bought 3 flats of dusty miller from Lowes at about 3.50 a flat and added it to all of my beds. Never underestimate an accent plant, they showcase your blooms. Whenever you buy plants look for buds NOT blooms, turn it upside down and remove from container to check the roots, you want it to be young not root bound. Also check for root rot or dry rot.
