What are suitable plants for a windy north facing fifth floor balcony in Toronto (zone 6)? I am looking for plants that can withstand the wind, and can do reasonably well without much direct sunlight.

New Guinea impatiens, such as Infinity Salmon from Proven Winners, is one type of impatiens resistant to downy mildew.
