Yea, always try to incorporate plenty of compost etc at planting time.
brunneras, bergenias spring to mind but liriopes will do well there...check out the almost white Blondy.
arrhenarhera bulbosum is a white "grass" that will light up any shady area. Heucheras, esp the yelllow, too will enjoy it there. Geranium Margaret Wilson has light purple flowers on delicate grey foliage. Carex like testacea, acorus Ogon, and ophiopogon nigrescens should be fine.
For summer try white busy lizzies...they are now disease resistant....
