Hi, Well without a drawing or photo to look at, landscaping a space like this is pretty difficult via email. In fact, I can't really picture the space you are trying to describe. I suggest you go to the Plant Encyclopedia section of this website and do an Advanced Search, plugging in your criteria for shade-loving plants and see what you get for a planting list. You can also check out our over 200 garden plans in our Garden Plans section of the website. I'm sorry I can't be of more assistance, but my guess would be that you may be looking for shade-tolerant perennials or ground covers in your situation.
