Summer shade flowers

The shady garden mostly blooms in spring, with a few plants waiting until fall.  But these polemonium are just now blooming, a welcome shady addition. 

Other blooms that are hanging on from spring include hellebore, geranium, huechera, corydalis, and astilbe.  Impatiens, begonias and fuschia will of course continue until frost.  But one of the most interesting is this arum.  It bloomed in spring and the leaves died back leaving this fruit stalk behind.
