Answer: You have some very exacting specifications, and it will be difficult to find something suitable for your shady site. Japanese spurge (Pachysandra terminalis), Vinca minor(periwinkle), Lamium maculatum (Dead Nettle) and Oxalis may be your only choices. These plants grow from 6"-12" high.
Hope one of these will be just what you're looking for!
