Good annuals for shade/blazing afternoon sun

What are some annuals that thrive in mostly shade all day but blazing sun from 3:00pm on? I'm looking for something to put in front of the limelight hydrangeas and boxwoods in front of my west facing porch. Preferably something that mounds and makes a statement. Last year I did diamond frost euphorbia which did ok, but thot I'd try something else this year, so I'm up for suggestions. I also did sun coleus, but the heat and sunlight were almost too much for them. Any suggestions? Zone 5 IA
