Some perennials to consider include Aquilegia, Heuchera, Lobelia cardinalis, Monarda, Salvia, Epimedium, Penstemon, Phlox, Dicentra spectabilis, Physostegia, Hosta, Asclepias,; Annuals to consider include Salvia, Impatiens, Nasturtium, red flowered Canna (rhizomes can be saved year to year) and Lantana (can be overwintered as a house plant); Biennials include Hollyhock and Foxglove; Shrubs include Lilac, Rhododendron, and Buddleia (grown as an annual in your zone); Vines include the trumpet creeper (Campsis radicans) and the honeysuckle vines such as Lonicera sempervirens. I hope this gives you some ideas.
