Columbine. It is a moisture-loving, shade-tolerant/shade-loving plant that has interesting foliage and unique flowers.

Yellow flag iris likes to grow in wet places, such as on the edge of ponds. If your spot is moist most of the time, they might do well there.

We have Central AC unit and Generator in the backyard near the house which gets minimal sun. We put gravel rocks around the back sides against the house and on the sides. Planted Hostras across the front, as we were told not to block the vent(s) and the grow low.

Radioguy,
Personally I think some cold hardy ferns would look nice there.
Try Ostrich fern, or visit a local nursery to see what they suggest.
Ostrich ferns can grow tall after a few years, but you can trim them.
