Hi Loopy - when you say 'tree' do you mean the trunk of it is dominating the area, with a canopy of foliage above? Also, what kind of tree is it?
It's a small area, but there will be something suitable. Is it wet shade or dry? That will also determine what you can grow. The holly will get big if it's happy there, so it won't leave much room unfortunately.
