Lily of the Valley is only attractive in spring. If you want an aggressive, yet attractive spreader, try variegated Vinca. If you have a large area and want something invasive, try "Yellow Archangel", Lamium galeobdolon. I tried this in a large shady area of my property. It does well and doesn't seem to be as invasive in shade.

Get some composted manure form a garden center (if you dont have a compost pile) and a bag of sand (home improvement store..."play sand" from Walmart is fine). Loosen the soil that is there and amend it with the manure and the sand....add a little lime to make the soil more alkaline....if near a concrete sidewalk or porch, minerals leaching from the concrete will make the soil a little more alkaline as well.
