Already mentioned astilbes. There are some superb varieties now......if you get those with new spring red or copper foliage,,like Vesuvius, Fanal, etc., you will get colour from early spring right up to late August.
Astrantias..tall white like jumble hole or superstar will give you flowers all summer.
Add a tall plant like kmiphofia, aconitum, veronicastrum or an actea and you have a nice bed

Pot it up Juniper. Dont put it in too big a pot...just enough to accommodate it. Water it and put it somewhere warm.

I planted a white mophead for a friend a couple years back, Fairy. Right now it looks stunning. Perfect spot....shady, moist and cool.
I prefer the paniculatas but if I can create a shady cool spot Hydrangea Annabel will be planted
Check out Kyushu is a charming shrub.

Very true Lyn.
At least get your monardas in where its reasonably moist to avoid the dreaded mildew Panda. Astilbes will be good companions........
