Lots of perennials will grow in part sun:
Acanthus, Aconitum, Astilbe, columbine, campanula, dicentra (bleeding heart), Alpine Rock Cress (Arabis alpina), Sea Holly (Eryngium planum), Creeping Phlox (Phlox subulata), Ligularia (Ligularia dentata), Grayleaf Geranium (Geranium cinereum). For shrubs, consider Encore Azaleas, kalmia, pieris, hydrangea and viburnums.
