Help with tiny flowerbed design, in deep shade, and moist (z8b)

Stonewall, LA

Planning for spring time in northern Louisiana.

There is a small spot by my side door that I'd like to plant before it gets gross.

The door is on the North side of my home. The fence is blocking western sun. There is a small flowerbed to left of the door with one large Loropetalum that is blocking eastern sun. So pretty deep shade.

The white PVC pipes in the brick wall drips condensation water from the central AC.

As you can see the sod that was growing there is dying back. It was nice and lush before we put the fence up.

I will build a proper raised bed there, 2' x 3 1/2'. It's 4' from the brick wall to the fence gate.

Do I have enough room to add an interesting flowerbed? Or should I just plant all of the same thing.
