I was hoping you had a couple of suggestion for ground cover or some type of flowers for a shady rock garden.

You didn't say how much shade, so here are a couple ideas for full shade: Polemonium reptans, primrose, Thalictrum alpinum (meadow rue), and Hepatica (liverleaf). For partial shade, consider Echeveria (Hens & Chicks, there are many varieties), Sedum (many varieties), columbine, and Veronica saturejoides.
The Shady Oaks Nursery (1-800-504-8006, catalog is packed with ideas and information about gardening in the shade.
