Wet soil

My back yard faces south, but we have a 6ft fence around the yard which shades the ground by the fence. I would like to plant something around the fence. The soil there stays wet. What kind of bushes or plants will grow in the wet soil. The only sun it gets in when the sun is in the west. I would like a perennial of some kind. I appreciate your suggestions
