While we don't have listings for specifically native to Queen Anne's County, we do have suggestions for native plants for the coastal plains of the Chesapeake.
Suggestions include Ilex glabra (inkberry holly), Ilex verticillata (winterberry holly- needs pollinator),Itea virginica (Virginia sweetspire), Kalmia angustifolia (sheep laurel), and Clethra.(Summersweet) and Spicebush.
Actually there are many which have great wildlife value. Take a look at this publication which details them for you. It may take a moment to download, but it is well worth it:
