There are literally hundreds that will thrive in your situation! Some suggestions: Alchemilla (Lady's Mantle)Anemone, Aruncus (Goatsbeard), Brunnera (Siberian Bugloss), Campanula (Bellflower), Dicentra (Bleeding Heart), Cimicfuga (Bugbane), Filipendula (Queen of the Prairie), Helleborus (Christmas Rose), Hemerocallis (Daylily), Heuchera (Coralbells), Siberian Iris, Mertensia (Virginia Bluebells), Polygonatum (Great Solomon's Seal), Primula (Primrose), Trillium Grandiflorum (Wakerobin), Lysimachia (Gooseneck Loosestrife), and Pulmonaria (Lungwort). I would suggest checking out a couple of perennial books from the library and flipping through them for further suggestions. You can also visit your local garden center as plants become available and literally pick and choose. Good luck!
