Looking for landscaping recommendations for a slope. NW Illinois Zone5

Illini Fan
last year

I’m just looking for suggestions on what to plant in this area. It was completely shaded by trees and that’s why it looks barren. At this point I’ve just put some of my split Hostas, lilies in there along with some small evergreens. I also have an azalea in there and a lilac at the top that was borderline dead that appears to be coming back slowly. More or less just to take up some space. This is on the South side and isn’t visible to anyone besides us when we are on our back porch. I don’t want to spend a ton of money, don’t want to build tiered retaining walls, etc. It doesn’t need to be magazine worthy - I just want to spruce it up a bit and hopefully hide the dirt for the bulk of the year. Thanks!!
