Begonias work for me.
Chlorophytum comosum, Asparagus densiflorus Myersii, Begonia sempervirens
Spider plants and Foxtail ferns are of the Lily family. They have in common storage structures on their roots so that they can go without water for a time.
Begonias are reputedly not fond of high humidity but mine seem to get along just fine. They look their best with some grooming to remove ugly leaves and spent blooms.
Separate pots of Cane Begonias are hanging out with the pots of the triad of Foxtail Fern, Spider Plant and Wax Begonia because they fit in well together and have similar water requirements.
All these are frost tender and have to find indoor homes before frost. Right now that seems a long way off. Last fall the Spider Plants in the urn were killed by frost and I started over this spring with Spider babies. If they'd been in the ground they would have survived, others did.
When I mention going without water, that does not mean they get along without regular water. It means that they do not faint and fall over without water twice daily like impatiens. If I forget to water, they will probably make it another day without turning into crispy critters before I remember.
What's your favorite combo for containers in shade?

Just remembered it is almost time for Bloom Day, too. Grab that camera!
