n place in the area? It is in the full shade with maybe a little sunlight. The area is moist with a clay base. I want something that can withstand heavy foot traffic but also look good. It would be nicer if the plant grows quickly

Full shade, clay soil, heavy foot traffic are not good conditions for a living ground cover. Any plantings would be bound to fail. Consider brick or flagstone on sand or other decorative pavers. Easiest and cheapest would be gravel or wood chips.
