Elfin thyme for sure! Also, I am sending a link to a nursery that specializes in fairy gardens. They will tell you just what plants to use!

Here is a link that might be useful: Mulberry Creek's faery gardens...

wild violets, pushkinia, wood hyacinths, trout lilies, foamflower, english daisies, smaller lamiums, all will do well in deep or dappled shade...also, i have some native ground covers that would do nicely but i don't know the names of them....

checkered lilies, epimedium, mitrewort, merrybells, jack in the pulpet, alliums, jacobs ladder, iris crestida, maidenhair fern, thalictrums, astrantia, bleeding hearts, trillium, digitalis grandiflora, anemones, anemonella, primulas, dropwort, solomons seal, celadine poppy.....can you tell these are some of my favorite things? lol....sweet woodruff, fairy wand, sweet cicely, royal fern, pink lily of the valley.....astilbe, shooting stars, japanese painted fern, geranium maculatum, dutchman's breeches, crocus, mayapple, ginger, bloodroot, dwarf balloonflower, toad lilies, corydalis, sensitive fern, pulmonaria (some of these things might get larger than what you want, but I kind of like the "secret little places" that are created underneath them too. I like to hide pieces of tiny china around, just in case they want to stop by for a spot of tea.
