I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
Good question and tough situation for a plant! I think I'd try one of the following options, either an evergreen plant or a perennial that would not be doing anything for the winter season. Consider dwarf yaupon, Salvia 'Mystic Spires', or Nierembergia 'Starry Eyes'.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
