really striking colour for shade

rouge21_gw(5)April 30, 2013

I have a new garden that is very much in shade. Many of the perennials that I have chosen on paper that have flowers have flowers that are white. So I am thinking about 'interjecting' with a couple of very bold, bright red leafed heuchera....for example "Paprika". What else would you suggest that I consider for a striking shade of red?

My 'Georgia Peach' is more of a peach colour, but holds its bright colour all season, and starts looking good as soon as the snow melts. It seems to be very durable - in almost full shade, and rather neglected. Here it is showing off may 1 2012.
