Flowers for shade under a tree and near a fence

I'm looking to grow flowers under a tree in my backyard, but most of the flowers are the colored leaf ones. I'm looking for something that has nice blooms and is a perennial. I've considered pulmonaria. Any advice?

Japanese anemone, hostas, Tricyrtis species and Impatiens oemiana and I. Francis and annual Impatiens species which reseed each year such as I. balfourii or glandulifera. Hydrangeas would be another good choice._
