Gunnera is a no go forget it.
If you have space try Taxodium distichum or Metasequoia glyptostrobides both members of the conifer family but decidious figure that out, Not all evergreen trees are conifers and not all conifers are evergreens! there are three other conifers also decidious anyone know what they are , Ill post if your interested.

Yes, I agree - Metasequoia glyptostroboides, Cedrus sp., Taxus sp., Alder sp., you can also try Acer rubrum as a nice deciduous addition, but not if you have clay!
