     Having had Siberians in Kentucky, I think the place you mentioned is
too shady for them.  Have you thought about Trimezia?  It has "Irisy"
blooms.  Here, I have seen it growing in places as shady as you mentioned. 
I don't know if it would be hardy in your area, but it may be worth
thinking about.
