what can I do here? Help!

Williamstown, NJ(Zone 6b)

This area is the left corner of my back yard. As you can see it gets all shade, is on a slope and the bottom area floods with hard rain. AS you can see it grows only ferns , english ivy( my boo boo) and weeds. I have tried to plant shrubs, hosta, and other flowers. but they all die. I did have a hydrangea cutting live that I put back there. I wonder if I should just stick to that. It is just an eye sore to me.
