Love your garden. Looks to me like you have more than a green thumb - your plants look so healthy. The orange colors in your gladiolas are terrific. It's really tough to find flowering plants that do well in shade, but I've had success with New Guinea Impatiens. Mine bloom year round, do take a lot of water, but they are a very forgiving plant - can droop to the point you are sure they are gonners, but within minutes come back to life with water. If you remove the less than healthy stems, the plant goes on producing great flowers (almost all colors) for years.

Good luck in your new garden. Jean Tessmer Hawaii
