need some ideas...west facing area

We lost a huge shade tree to hurricane Frances and now my shade garden (West side of house) is no longer a shade garden! I have moved most of the shade plants but am at a loss as for what to put there. The area gets morning shade and hot afternoon sun. So many plants prefer the opposite here (morning sun/afternoon shade). What do you have planted that does well in your west-facing gardens?
