Answer: Lily of the Valley or Convallaria majalis should grow for you in shady spot with evenly moist soil. It is sometimes sold in pots in the spring when it is blooming, but it is more often sold as bare pips in the fall for fall planting. They are often included along with spring flowering bulbs.
Leucojum (Snowflakes) and Crocus are also usually sold in the fall and that is when the best selection is available. Both should grow in your area. Spring flowering bulbs are widely sold for planting in the fall so I don't think it will be at all difficult to find these locally once they come on the market. Enjoy your new garden!
