What are some good bushes and perennial shrubs for a shady area?

Zone Louisville, Kentucky | csm96 added on August 15, 2019 | Answered

I'm landscaping an area that gets about 3 or 4 hours of sun a day. It's an eight foot wide area between our neighbor's privacy fence and our house. I need tall evergreen bushes (like arborvitae, but they take full sun) to line the privacy fence and some other smaller perennial flowering shrubs to go up against our orange brick house, preferably blue or purplish. Do you have any suggestions? I've included a picture of the area. Thanks!
