There's a lot to,be said for growing according to,the conditions ??ou have.
It seems ??ou have a fairly wet shady site. This is perfect for ferns.....lovely shades of dark and light greens as well as silvery greys. Astllbes and astrantias love shade and damp. Pulmonarias in full flower now will do well there. There are shade loving geraniums, grasses like hackanochloa....absolutely stunning.....carex with coloured foliage. Aconitums ...taller with blue or purple flowers in summer, corydalis flexuosa with brilliant blue flowers. Heucheras. ESP the yellow ones. White arum lilies will love it there too. Shrubs like skimmia. Sarcoccoca....fantastic winter scent....is lovely evergreen. Daphne's and hydrangeas will do,well there.
You,could have a very attractive, low maintenance foliage and flower area there of interest throughout the year....
