Oh lovely, a blank canvas - as long as it isn't in total shade all the time, lots of plants would like that situation. Here's a list, larger shrubs first:
Fatsia japonica; Aucuba japonica; Cornus alba 'Elegantissima'; Mahonia aquifolium; Crinodendron hookeranium; Cotoneaster varieties (small or large); Ribes sanguinum. Then sarcococca varieties, fuchsia, geraniums (cranesbill ones, such as G. 'Johnson's Blue'), Lysimachia punctata, Convallaria, Tiarella, Primula/primrose/polyanthus, Brunnera, Ajuga reptans, Campanula muralis, I'll stop now shall I...
