Gigantalope - way to bring it!
I would just emphasize the following:
The bigger question is: how much sun? Certain flowers, like Hibiscus, won't do as well in the shade.
If you do have more shade, go with green foliage, and leave color to bromilliades and annuals.
I don't know what neck of the woods you live, but these are my favorite nurseries:
the Jungle on Washington, just east of Robertson, near the historic (& restored) Culver hotel & bar. Great indoor & outdoor, sun & shade collection.
Marina Del Rey nursery, off the 90. Very expansive and close to the ocean.
The tropical nursery on Fairfax, just north of Melrose. Overpriced, but interesting selections.
Mr. Lee on LaBrea, just north of Fountain - cost effective.
If you are anywhere South, CStars of the Century Fwy (150?)in Gardena or Compton is a large nursery with excellent prices.
Also, for large green plants, check home depo.
