Dry shady bed

i have a north facing dry shay bed which has some conifer growing in it which I can not remove.
i have a large hellebore and a Pulmonata in it as well as Japanese anemome and some Solomon’s seal coming through.Also some forget me not.
Any ideas for more plants,I wouldn’t mind some white flowers?😃

    Cyclamen will grow in deep shade

    Sweet Rocket (Hesperis matronalis), foxgloves and lily of the valley all can have white flowers and do well in dry shade for me. There are lots of ferns that suit dry shade too.
    I know you already have an anenome, but have a look at Wild Swan, I put some in my very dry deep shade bed last year and they were superb, they flowered all summer long with the most gorgeous flowers
  • Snowdrops do well in my shady, north facing bit.
    As Jellyfire said, ferns too.
    I also have white cyclamen hederifolium in mine.
