Astilbies look good at this time of the year and sedum spectabile coming soon. I would visit some NGS gardens for ideas of which plants look good together.

Help! Have I got Japenese Knotweed growing in my garden?

Careful, it will take over. Alan Titchmarsh says it is easy to pull up, but need to do it before it sets seeds, or it will be difficult to get rid of.
