If you're looking for a native shade perennial that blooms later in the season, and I mean late and for a long time, then I absolutely have the perfect plant for you!
AKA "Eastern Featherbells", Stenanthium gramineum is a stunning member of the Melanthiaceae family, the same family as another of my faves, Veratrum viride. It's native to more than half the US and will grow well in just about any state in the US.
Not only does Stenanthium start blooming in late summer, when there really isn't much going on, but it keeps on blooming until the killing frosts of October with panicles of pure white flowers over wide, lush, grasslike foliage, on graceful, 36" - 60" stems.
I grow Stenanthium in average soil, in full to light shade. However, if you're going to grow it in full sun, the soil needs to be a bit more moist.
This plant is a "No-Brainer" to grow and a real show stopper in flower.
