Golden sweet flag: Acorus gramineus or "Ogon" is one of relatively few ornamental grasses happy in partial or even full shade.

*Boxwood 'Dee Runk' is reportedly the nicest of the columnar boxwoods tolerating shade and clay soils. Total height of 8-10 ft tall can be sheared shorter. Max width about two feet.
