If you've got shade, plant bromeliads (although, there are some varieties that like the full sun). This variety is one of my favorites. The bright red center just grabs my eye everytime I walk past them. They are a great groundcover, don't need fertilizer or pruning. Once in a while I have to thin them out and beg a neighbor to take a few. But other than that they're pretty maintenance free!
