    Not knowing where you live I am unable to pinpoint some suggestions.Here are a few that may work in your growing/planting zone. You can find out your zone on this page as well as check out some of the suggested plants.

    Perennials: Athyrium spp. – Lady Fern, Japanese Painted Fern (moist to wet soils); Camptosorus rhizophyllus – Walking Fern – (alkaline, wet soils); Ligularia spp. – Ragwort – (rich, wet soils); Lysimachia punctata – Loosestrife (moist to wet soils) Hosta’s like well drained soils but will withstand mosit areas.

    hostas and bleeding hearts also flower and will also give you some color as well. just make sure they can be planted in your zone.
