seeking shade plant recomendation  
I have a shady spot in my shady yard, it gets very little sun. I'd like to plant some sort of perennial there, that is hardy enough to not get crowded out by weeds if I neglect it for awhile, is somewhat drought resistant since it gets hella dry in the summer, is not overly enthusiastic (I don't want it to take over the place!) and is good looking.

anyone have any suggestions? it's for a north facing yard in san francisco on the edge of the fog zone.

Shade garden
I have noticed on my morning walks in Oakland that Lamium galeobdolon does well as a ground cover in lots of shade. Its green with silver variegation,has yellow flowers and spreads itself nicely. Good Luck!
