Bog plants?

I have a Belfast sink in a shady damp spot. I can’t move it as it’s too heavy but nothing survives in it. Are there such things as attractive plants that would grow in such a place?

How shady ? There’s plenty nice bog plants but they need some light.

Is there anything you can do about the shades, like cutting back shrubs or trees? Or is it shade by buildings ? What’s the aspect ?

A photo might help.

What about ferns? Some of them thrive in damp, dark conditions.

Thanks all, I forgot I posted this

It’s against a north facing wall so shady but not totally devoid of light
