I've had much success with the black grass (ophiopogon planiscapus nigrescens), my absolute favourite plant, Heucheras and Hebes. All get on well with each other, give year-round interest, are easy to look after and don't take up too much space. I don't allow the Heucheras to flower i.e I just cut off the flower heads so that I can enjoy the foliage but it's your choice. Have fun.
