For this summer busy lizzies will brighten that area very well.keep watered.
Ferns of course. Bergenias and brunneras. Acorus ogon is evergreen with yellow foliage and will do well there. Carex evergold and aurea elata too. Consider the vincas.....some nice variegated varieties that will light up thaf area. ,Blue and white flowers.
Cyclamen, lily of the valley and daffodils will add colour there.
Liriope is evergreen with short attractive purple blue flowers in late summer.....nice white foliage variety called Blondy......and ajugas with their evergreen, purple black foliage and blue flowers will be food there. Heucheras, and the yellow orange varieties in particular, astilbes and a yellow grass called Bowles Golden Grass are worth looking at. Ophiopogon nigrescens too.
