Ivy the would cover that area but is not your only option. It grows well with some shade but it does take a lot of water in the sun. Another options would be short clumping ornamental grasses (if the area receives very good light). I suggest you contact your County Extension Office to see if they have a list of adapted plants for your area on hand.

Thanks for the question and please stop in again soon!
