I have a decking area that has a shady spot, that I want to bring some colour too.  What are the best plants to get?

Well it depends on what kind of colour you want... foliage? Flower? Autumn?, A shade tolerant shrub would be a good idea then you can change the planting around the edge to suit you.  Aucuba is shade tolerant and can have bright variegated leaves, Viburnum tinus copes well in most situations... or a nice Acer would also look good!
