Most plants will grow well in that much light, if the soil is good. A lot depends on the space available but you should be able to accomodate a few shrubs, maybe only small kinds, as a year-round abckbone with some perennial flowers to fill the ground area and provide colour, and some spring bulbs.

The actual choice of which plants to use is a matter of personal preference. Go to garden centres in each of the seasons to choose plants for that season as plants are now mostly only stocked in flower.  Some plants might tumble over the edge.
