Here are some articles that will suggest plants and shrubs that will do well in your area, and will tolerate a broad range of conditions:

Keep in mind that most flowering plants will be just fine as a foundation plant. Some larger shrubs can cause issue, but many do not. Just avoid anything invasive, and avoid planting trees near your foundation.
