If you are looking for some color: Euonymus gold will grow there, as will Dwarf Nandina (heavenly bamboo). This plant produces reddish-tinged new foliage which changes later to green. In the fall, the foliages changes again to a reddish-bronze color. Daphne odora is an evergreen with white margins on medium green leaves. This plant produces flowers in late winter. Finally, some azaleas are evergreen and will produce a brilliant floral display in late-spring. Hope one of these suggestions appeals to you. Also check your soil conditions; make sure that your soil is not to dense and well drained for these plantings. Hope this helps and good luck!
