Some shrubs for a shady spot might include some of the smaller azaleas and rhododendrons, pieris (Japanese Andromeda), yews, and possibly the short "Otto Luyken" cherry laurel. All of these shrubs appreciate a moist yet well drained soil (meaning not soggy) and need soil well supplied with humousy organic matter. The first three types also require an acid soil to do well.
