Just for you Kevin. I found this list of shrubs for shade at www.LarrySagers.com right here. It also lists all other kinds of shade loving (or tolerating) plants. Just beware, many of these grow way too big for comfort.
Shrubs for shady areas
"Flourish in filtered light"
1. Red twig and yellow twig dogwood
4. mountain lover
"Tried and true"
6. barberry (these are thorny)
8. euonymus (like burning bush, but I think that specific one needs light to get its nice red color)
"Tolerate some shade"
12. Oregon grape
13. mock orange
"for something a little more unusual"
17. Japanese maples
18. a few azaleas and rhododendrons.
P.S. Here are a few good hostas.
