Look into the plant called eastern teaberry or wintergreen, Gaultheria procumbens. It tolerates shade, is low growing and is recommended for soil erosion control. Spiderwort/bluejacket and solomon's seal, false lily of the valley and wild ginger are other possibilities. Spicebush is a shrub that does well in shade. While getting new plants established, cover the soil with straw or burlap. Additional things to consider are a small swale filled with river rock that leads to a rain garden; thinning limbs from the trees to allow more sunlight; and ensuring downspouts point away from the trouble spot. (There are a number of rain garden plants that prefer at least partial shade.) Finally, consult with a landscaping company to discuss options including dry wells, terracing, and drainage management.
