For sun/part sun native flowering plants I’d recommend Joe Pye weed ‘little joe’, helianthus, goldenrod ‘fireworks’…homestead verbena may not be native but it attracts hummingbird moths and lots of other beneficial insects and is usually perennial. I like my ninebark shrub and amsonia grass. Here’s a great resource http://www.nps.gov/plants/pubs/chesapeake/
A few years ago I had my yard Bayscaped thru RiverSmart Homes project (DC Dept of Environment) – worth looking into.
