Frost tolerance or hardiness is a major factor. According to the USDA Plant Hardiness Zones, your zip code is in Zone 6b. You can review the following article and plant list for some possibilities. Hydrangeas are really nice and on the list for your zone.

A local garden center will carry plants that are suitable for your area.
