Oh... I've got a book written by Lois Hole all about edible flowers. She's a Canadian author, and typically offers advice for some of the colder growing zones. I'm not sure how available here book is in the States, but you could always check out www.Amazon.ca.
From memory she recommends nasturtiums (peppery), marigolds (not the French - as they're too bitter) and oh geeze.... I think It's related to the carnation... Dianthus also peppery in flavour.
And of course roses, and poppies (for the seed).
I think most of these are SUN lovers though - but there are climbing nasturtiums so that might work - violets are also edible - I'm thinking old fashioned cupcakes with sugared violets.
