What are the best plants for shade?

I need shade loving plants ideas because we have a small north facing garden and a 3 storey house. The garden doesn’t get a lot of direct sunlight but we want to line the edges with flowerbeds or something nice. I need ideas for types of flowers that grow in shade. Which types of shrubs or flowers would be best suited to thrive in low light?
