Bergenias would grow well,there....some have burgundy coloured leaves and vivid flowers in spring. Pulmonarias, yes, ESP those with white/ silvery leaves. try liriopes too....evergreen grass like plants with purple spikes right now. there are hardy geraniums that would fit the bill.
Ferns come in a large range so check them out carefully. Consider grassss too. Festucas, stipa Tennuissima, etc.
Consider tulbaghia too. They have fantastic silver blue foliage topped with pink flowers in summer.
Loads you could consider for that spot.
