There are often questions  about flowering plants for dry shade.
Perennial candytuft  snowflake does really well in cracked  clay in heavily dappled  shade .
It's  not a quick fix, though. This is year 3 

In London. Keen but lazy.

    That’s really pretty, I have an area under a ceanothus that’s crying out for something and the white would work well to brighten a dark corner. Thanks for that @B3

    Good to know. Thanks. How long does yours flower for?

    A good few weeks and then you get what looks like lime green petals. They might be seed heads,I don't know. They last for the rest of the summer.
