Based on your description this is actually considered a full sun situation. You might consider boxwoods, smaller growing cultivars of Pieris japonica if you prefer a flowering plant, or possibly one of the lower growing junipers. Your local professional nursery staff should be able to show you these, and may also have other suggestions based on a more detailed understanding of the planting conditions in that spot and your design goals. I hope this gives you some ideas.
