Zone 5 plants which do not go dormant in summer?

i am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for any shade loving plants which do not go dormant or look ratty come summer/fall...I do have some Canadian ginger which seems to hold on looking nice. The hostas I have are not really gaining in size so maybe it might be too shady for them?

I am in zone 5, it is very shady and in some areas there is almost no sun at all (meaning like an hour of very dappled sun in the early morning).

Part of the garden is dry (norway maple) and the other areas are moist (under iron woods, lindens)

Thanks for any suggestions :)
