    Heucheras, hosts, hellebores. Lily of the valley. Species primulas. Dicentra. Foxgloves. Gallium odoratum. Many cranesbill species (hardy geraniums). Solomon's seal (polygonatum). Pulmonaria. Tiarella.

    Shrubs - hydrangea, rhododendron and azaleas. These need it to be damp and acidic soil.

    Most ferns.

    Depends on whether you are talking about shaded but still moist soil or dry shade as in under trees or hedges. If it's the latter then your options are much more limited. Google plants for dry shade. 

    Hope this helps.
